This Greenhouse Gas Emissions – Natural and Human Causes lesson plan also includes:
Part three in the series of seven has pupils discussing the different greenhouses gases, learning about the carbon cycle, and then watching a short video about the carbon cycle. Based on their knowledge, individuals complete a greenhouse gas diagram and answer some questions.
- Have learners work in pairs until they reach the greenhouse emission diagram and then have them work independently to show what they have learned
- Video referenced is a brain-pop video which requires a subscription; brain-pop does offer some videos for free, but a different video over the carbon cycle could easily be used
- Depending upon length of discussions, level of classes, and length of class periods, the lesson could be completed in one to two classes
- Activity includes a box about misconceptions scholars may have and information to correct it, specifically that the ozone hole causes global warming
- All worksheets, diagrams, and links to resources are found throughout the lab
