Activity Overview


The scientific community generally agrees that the increase in greenhouse gases in the atmosphere is causing an increase in average global temperatures, known as the Greenhouse Effect. This is where the Sun's radiation enters the Earth's atmosphere in a range of wavelengths. The Earth absorbs this radiation and emits it as infrared radiation. Some of the radiation is radiated back into space, but some of this infrared radiation is absorbed by the greenhouse gases in the Earth’s atmosphere. This causes the atmosphere to warm up.

In this activity, students will create a model of the greenhouse effect. Using labels and arrows, they'll show how radiation moves throughout the atmosphere. To scaffold this activity, consider adding arrows or labels and letting students fill in the blanks.
