Inquiries in Science®: Understanding Climate Change Kit

Item # 251417 Exclusive

Grades 9–12. Students explore how all greenhouse gas sources contribute to global climate change. They discover how carbon dioxide interacts with the atmosphere to contribute to rising global temperatures. They also investigate the role of the ocean as a carbon sink and how climate change can affect the uptake and sequestration of carbon dioxide. In the final activity, students alter their simulated environments to determine how different environmental conditions influence the greenhouse effect.

Grades 9–12.

  • Discover natural and human sources of greenhouse gases
  • Investigate how oceans absorb excess carbon dioxide
  • Experiment to analyze the effects of carbon dioxide under varying environmental conditions
Students explore how all greenhouse gas sources contribute to global climate change. First they discover, through experimentation, how the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide interacts with the atmosphere to contribute to rising global temperatures. They also investigate the role of the ocean as a carbon sink and how climate change can affect the uptake and sequestration of carbon dioxide. In the final activity, students alter their simulated environments to determine how different environmental conditions influence the greenhouse effect. Part of the Inquiries in Science® series. Materials are sufficient for 30 students working in groups.

Inquiries in Science Series

Inquiries in Science® Series Kits

Inquiries in Science® is our exclusive series of hands-on kits specifically designed to help high school students understand abstract, hard-to-grasp science concepts. The series tracks well with most textbooks, and kit topics reflect state science standards and extensive educator input. Since Inquiries in Science® is modular, you can use the kits individually, as a strand, or as a series to teach biology, chemistry, and environmental science.


Improve Student Achievement

Field-tested in classrooms nationwide, Inquiries in Science® employs guided inquiry based on the 5E learning cycle of engage, explore, explain, extend, and evaluate. This inquiry-based approach also promotes STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) practices. It enables students to:

  • Consider a real-world question or problem
  • Plan and conduct an investigation and gather data
  • Understand the science concept by analyzing data and communicating findings
  • Apply their findings to the original real-world question or problem and master the science concept

Inquiries in Science® helps students build critical-thinking and problem-solving skills, and encourages creativity, collaboration, and teamwork. It creates an environment in which you and your students work together as active learners.

Disciplines and topics addressed by the kits were organized and selected based on data from numerous sources, including the National Research Council's National Science Education Standards, AAAS's Project 2061 Science Benchmarks, NAEP's Science Framework, and state science education standards from across the US. In addition, the Inquiries in Science® content and activities reflect the science practices and engineering practices, core ideas, and crosscutting concepts outlined by the National Research Council's A Framework for K–12 Science Education (2011) and the Next Generation Science Standards (2013).
