                      Daily assignments should always be written in your assignment books. 
                      You may have to call a friend if this is not up to date. 
    -- Please organize your binders.
                      Clean out your math stuff from the last unit.
                       You can leave papers in a folder at home or recycle.  
                        Keep your stuff from our current unit.
                       Take all of the junk out of the front pocket of your binder.

    IN CLASS LINKS: For webquest: 

    1: SCIENCE- THE GREENHOUSE EFFECT: From our lab, we looked at how  adding carbon dioxide to the air can cause an increase in the temperature.  Watch the video below to learn a bit more about how this happen.



    2. EVIDENCE FROM THE PAST: Where do scientists get EVIDENCE for the past amounts of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere? Watch these 2 videos about Ice Cores as evidence:



    3: EVIDENCE From Satellites: Watch how Carbon Dioxide (CO2)  moves around the Earth in this time lapse video from NASA satellite imagery.  Watch the first half of the video: 0-1:35



    Watch this  video about how carbon (and carbon dioxide) move through the Earth system.



    5. HUMAN IMPACT: Watch this video to see why NASA scientists currently believe that human activity is causing climate change. Great video with lots of real NASA satellite data and images of Earth.




     7: IMPACT: Explore the website to learn about the impact of climate change
    8: How will climate change affect you? Your community? The environment around you? https://archive.epa.gov/climatechange/kids/impacts/effects/index.html

    9. SOLVING: TO MAKE CHANGE: We need to learn a bit more about fossil fuels and electricity. .

    What is a fossil fuel?




    10. What is the connection between Fossil Fuels and Electricity?



    11. What is a carbon Footprint?





    Friday: 5/11  Homework: 
    Red, green, blue: Make a bar graph of your data. You only need to do the temperature rise in the experiment. 
    Yellow:: Complete the last page in your lab packet.  The information is copied below. Watch movie videos out greenhouse effect and impact. Do your best!


    1. There are pro’s and cons to greenhouse gases. Please list the pro’s and con’s below:








    2. Carbon Dioxide is one greenhouse gas.  Please list other greenhouse gases? 
    3. What is the impact of burning fossil fuels? 
    Monday 5/7:  No Homework!
    Friday: Study for quiz on Monday.
