Educational Use
Rating
0.0 stars

Students use their senses to describe what the weather is doing and predict what it might do next. After gaining a basic understanding of weather patterns, students act as state park engineers and design/build "backyard weather stations" to gather data to make actual weather forecasts.

C-Learn: the International Climate Change Simulation
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

C-Learn is a simplified version of the C-ROADS simulator. Its primary purpose is to help users understand the long-term climate effects (CO2 concentrations, global temperature, sea level rise) of various customized actions to reduce fossil fuel CO2 emissions, reduce deforestation, and grow more trees. Students can ask multiple, customized what-if questions and understand why the system reacts as it does.

Carbon Dioxide Exercise
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

Students work in groups, plotting carbon dioxide concentrations over time on overheads and estimating the rate of change over five years. Stacked together, the overheads for the whole class show an increase on carbon dioxide over five years and annual variation driven by photosynthesis. This exercise enables students to practice basic quantitative skills and understand how important sampling intervals can be when studying changes over time. A goal is to see how small sample size may give incomplete picture of data.

Carbon Dioxide - Sources and Sinks
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

In this lab activity, students use a chemical indicator (bromothymol blue) to detect the presence of carbon dioxide in animal and plant respiration and in the burning of fossil fuels and its absence in the products of plant photosynthesis. After completing the five parts of this activity, students compare the colors of the chemical indicator in each part and interpret the results in terms of the qualitative importance of carbon sinks and sources.

Rating
0.0 stars

This introduction lesson is designed to improve students' vocabulary skills and understanding of earthquakes. The pre-game vocabulary activity will allow students to define terms related to earthquakes using prior knowledge. This will allow the students to see what they will be covering and will activate any prior knowledge. During game play, students will be able to improve their definition of the different terms as well as understanding the basics of earthquakes. The post-game activity will allow your students and yourself the opportunity to see how the students' scientific vocabulary has grown. Attribution: University of Wisconsin using The Yard Games added on May, 28, 2019.
