Description

Provide students with insight into the science of our atmosphere and the effects of humanity's actions on the Earth System. Our resource gives a scientific perspective on climate change that will help students separate fact from fiction. Investigate the different layers of the atmosphere. Conduct an experiment to see just how an object's color affects how much radiation it absorbs. Find out what effect rising temperatures have on Earth's oceans. Create your own model of the carbon cycle. Explain how the residence time of methane in the atmosphere could help people fight global warming. Learn what effects ozone has on human health. See firsthand how nitrogen-fixing bacteria can replace nitrogen fertilizers. Figure out why synthetic gases were banned, and how long their effects will stay in the atmosphere. Written to Bloom's Taxonomy and STEAM initiatives, additional hands-on activities, crossword, word search, comprehension quiz and answer key are also included.
