Inquiries in Science®: Understanding Climate Change Kit

(in stock)


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.
