In this kinesthetic activity, students take on roles of either photons or gas molecules. Photons signal a change from visible light to infrared with a piece of folded construction paper, simulating absorption by the Earth's surface and reradiation to space. The play is guided by flipping a coin, and students see how stochastic processes result in 70% of visible protons being absorbed and reradiated ... Full description.

In this guided research investigation, students investigate the process of science and build media literacy by studying the public debate about climate change. Students compare media articles from 1989-2010, and observe that statements differ according to the source and publication date. Links to the articles are provided. This activity is supported by a textbook chapter, What is Global Warming?, ... Full description.

In this lab activity, student teams hypothesize which source has a greater becomes COČ concentration: their breath, auto exhaust, or air in the classroom. They test gas samples from each of these sources, plot data, and hypothesize about the respective role engine exhaust and animal respiration play in contemporary climate change. The lab procedures require Bromthymol Blue indicator solution (BTB), ... Full description.

In this paper and pencil activity, students plot atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration levels in Mauna Loa and Antarctica, and infer an explanation for the patterns they see in the data. A Java applet graphing tool allows students to explore carbon dioxide concentrations from global sampling sites. This activity is supported by a textbook chapter, How is the Atmosphere Changing?, part of the unit, ... Full description.

This activity presents a digital interactive where students identify anthropogenic sources of carbon dioxide and their relative contribution to carbon enrichment of the atmosphere. Students then obtain a photograph pair of a scene in their community, and identify sources of atmospheric carbon dioxide that did not exist in the earlier photograph. Alternatively, they can interview community members ... Full description.

In this hands-on activity, students will test one aspect of a theory that reduction in the polar caps will speed global warming. They simulate a polar region with pans of water, one painted white to represent a glacier, and one painted black or blue to represent the same area after the ice has melted. They place the covered pans in the sun with water in the bottom, and measure and compare the temperature ... Full description.

This experiment has student teams comparing a sample of room air with one of the greenhouse gases - carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide, or methane - and observing the relative effectiveness of the gases in trapping infrared (IR) radiation. The activity requires an IR heat source, such as a heat lamp, two 2-liter beverage bottles, #4 one hole rubber stoppers, and a thermometer or temperature probes. Nitrous ... Full description.

Students work in teams to research and debate the following issues: protection of spotted owl habitat, ozone depletion, global warming, and acid rain. Each team is assigned a topic and given opposing statements by Al Gore and Rush Limbaugh as a starting point for their library research. The purpose of this activity is to improve students' reasoning and debating skills while raising their awareness ... Full description.

This self-paced tutorial explores the importance of engineering solutions to the management of climate change by brainstorming ways to remove COČ from the atmosphere and store it in a form that does not promote global warming. The module also provides resources for students to learn about engineering careers related to climate change. Learners compare the design process used in engineering projects ... Full description.

In this data activity, students use NASA satellite data to compare surface temperature and precipitation of different islands in the Pacific Ocean. Students will create climographs for the island of Guam and 2 other islands using the MY NASA DATA Live Access Server as a resource. Step-by-step instructions for use of the MY NASA DATA Live Access Server (LAS) guide students through selecting a data ... Full description.
