The Greenhouse Effect In A Jar

This simple experiment serves as an introduction to the greenhouse effect. Students can see for themselves the effects of a greenhouse, and relate this understanding to what occurs in our atmosphere.

The Earth Bowl

Scientists know that the earth is made of four layers: the inner core, outer core, mantle, and crust. See “Ideas for Discussion,” #1. The Earth Bowl is a three dimensional, edible representation of the earth in cross section. (If time allows, have children participate in measuring the ingredients and constructing the Bowl.)

We Care About the Earth

Students will create Public Service announcements about protecting the Earth.

The Geologists’ Dilemma

Students will learn that our resources are limited on this Earth, and we must conserve the resources that we have.

Birth of the Earth

Students will create a timeline of the Earth’s History.
