Global Atmospheric Change

Author(s): Nancy Moreno, Barbara Tharp and Judith Dresden

The Science of Global Atmospheric Change

This slide set is designed for use with The Science of Global Atmospheric Change Teacher’s Guide, which contains lessons that enable students to explore what visible light is made of, characteristics of Earth's atmosphere, fossil fuels and the carbon cycle, combustion, food conversion to energy, skin protection, using heat from the sun, the greenhouse effect, and how climate affects how we live in different parts of the world. The Science of Global Atmospheric Change Teacher’s Guide may be used alone or with the following integrated educational components.

  • Mr. Slaptail’s Curious Contraption (student storybook)

  • Explorations (student magazine)

  • The Reading Link (language arts supplement)

  • The Math Link (mathematics activities supplement)

Activities are organized into the following science areas.

  • Physical Science (visible light, spectrum, electromagnetic radiation, combustion, fossil fuels, carbon cycle, atmosphere, nitrogen, oxygen, carbon dioxide)

  • Life Science (respiration, UV light, protecting skin, skin cancer, food as fuel)

  • Environmental Science and Health (using energy, global warming, climate change, solar energy, greenhouse gas, greenhouse effect)


Complete instructions for conducting activities in this slide set, including materials needed, setup instructions, extensions, student sheets and answer more, can be found in The Science of Global Atmospheric Change Teacher’s Guide, which is available free-of-charge at http://www.bioedonline.org/lessons-and-more/teacher-guides/global-atmospheric-change/.
