Reflection: Real World Applications Climate Change and the Greenhouse Effect - Section 5: Day 2: Evaluate


After completing this lesson, I found additional materials related to climate changes causes and effects based on the series, "Earth: The Operator's Manual". You have to create an account in order to gain access to the majority of the materials, but the only cost involved is a few minutes of your time, and it is well worth it!

For video segments, classroom activities, and more, visit Earth: The Operating Manual site for educators.
