Lesson Plans for Educators
EPA has compiled a suite of hands-on, interactive lesson plans to complement and make use of the material on this website. The plans, aimed primarily at middle school students, work systematically and individually to reinforce students’ knowledge of climate change, as well as enhance skills across multiple disciplines. The lessons are correlated to national science standards.
You will need Adobe Reader to view the files on this page. See EPA's PDF page to learn more.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) would like to thank the following organizations and agencies who created the original activities from which some of these lesson plans were adapted:
- Carbon Through the Seasons National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)
- Getting to the Core: Climate Change Over Time National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)
- Tree Rings: Living Records of Climate National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)

the greenhouse effect and global warming. 3. Analyze global warming diagrams and resources to obtain a clear understanding of this scientific process. 4. Hypothesize about the effects of global warming on the climate and the world's populations. 5. Conduct research using a variety of primary sources to explore perspectives in the global warming ...
global warming issues. If you answered NO, then choose a project from the “NO” list. NOTE: Feel free to develop project ideas of your own. Just get teacher approval on these BEFORE beginning your work to be sure they are appropriate. “YES” Project Ideas • Create a game to teach others about practical

what you learned in your Global Warming Project and how this information will affect your life. You will internally cite the information you use in your project turn in a works cited page for you project. The body of the project will address the following seven key points: 1. Explain the chemistry behind greenhouse gases and global warming. 2 ...
1. Challenge the class to create a climate change poster. Each group will be responsible for the text and graphics describing their researched theme or category. Using the results of the Futures Wheel and questions, have each group create the text and graphics for a separate panel and together create a class climate poster. 2.
Global warming is dangerous and serious which can cause environmental damage and the universe and can cause flooding, rising sea levels, and other problems (Shahzad, 2015). Energy and Mineral ...
