Author(s): Nancy P. Moreno, PhD, Barbara Z. Tharp, MS, and Judith Dresden, MS.

Greenhouse S'Mores

“Greenhouse S'Mores” introduces students to concepts related to the greenhouse effect and provides background content to inform students’ thinking about climate change. Students will observe how some transparent materials allow light to pass through, but do not let heat escape. Students will make observations and predictions, model, and draw conclusions based on their investigation.

Concepts

  • Different materials absorb and trap heat differently. 
  • Some materials allow light to pass through but do not let heat escape.

Student Worksheets

Student pages in the teacher’s guide are provided in English and in Spanish.
