Greenhouse Effect and Global Warming

Lesson Plans by Oliver Smith

One of the biggest challenges our students' generation will face is climate change. For many years, scientists have linked the increased average global temperatures to the increased amount of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases in our atmosphere. These gases act like the glass in a greenhouse—letting radiation through, which warms the planet, but not allowing the heat to escape. The following activities will help students understand how this process works, and the actions they can take to help.
