Climate Change Lesson Plans

These are the outlines for lessons to help in teaching about climate change and methods for mitigation to the humans who will have work on the problem.


CO2 as an insulating gas:

This is a super project where you add CO2 to one bottle and air in another.   Place both bottles in front of a heat source (light) and observe the temperature change over time.   Empirical data!!!!

-This could probably be done with methane too.  I think perhaps gather natural gas (methane) from the municipal supply.


 When does heat kill?

Algae Beads to demonstrate high heat limit.
