Earth under the lid - Understanding the greenhouse effect
In this set of two activities, pupils will learn what the greenhouse effect and greenhouses gases are and the positive and negative consequences of these on the atmosphere. Pupils will be given the opportunity to build a model and perform temperature measurements to enhance their understanding of the greenhouse effect. This lesson will help pupils to understand that the human induced increase in the greenhouse effect is causing global warming. These two activities can be done individually or as a set.
