Description

Climate change is an important topic Students will really enjoy learning about climate change and global warming with these engaging activities.
This resource is specially designed to teach from the Earth’s Systems strand. NGSS MS-ESS3-5 Ask questions to clarify evidence of the factors that have caused the rise in global temperatures over the past century.
Students will learn about the carbon cycle and its role in the greenhouse effect. Students will learn about the natural greenhouse effect on how it works within our atmosphere to keep our planet at a relatively steady temperature. Students will also learn that increased greenhouse gases cause an enhanced greenhouse effect that can lead to global warming and climate change.

This resource is packed with activities. It includes an informative slideshow, note-taking guide, nonfiction passages, response pages, interactive notebook flaps, QR code research, a quiz, and answers keys for all of it. There is also a hands-on activity/lab that will help students understand the greenhouse effect.

Students will be guided to create an explanation built on evidence. Students will see reputable scientific evidence from organizations like NASA and NOAA. Students will ask questions to clarify evidence.

This resource is also aligned with Utah SEEd Standard 6.3.4 Construct an explanation supported by evidence for the role of the natural greenhouse effect in Earth’s energy balance, and how it enables life to exist on Earth.

I am so impressed with this unit which manages to be distance learning and hands-on at the same time.  Really well thought out and engaging activities that allow students to practice each of the eight Science and Engineering Practices.  Really no prep for me!

The elephant article was excellent but I also thought the lab on dissecting a flower was broken down so easily, even telling me where to get inexpensive flowers!  This resource helped me teach this challenging standard in an engaging way.  Worth every penny!

My students loved this unit. I was able to present different elements of it throughout the month. It is hard to find interesting non-fictional, age-appropriate text for my students that they will enjoy. This was a great unit that aligned well for my students who have very different goals within the same group.
