Lesson Plan: The Greenhouse Effect Classroom Lab Activity (1-8)

Discovering the science behind Earth's changing climate can be an exciting environmental lesson! In this engaging classroom lab activity, students will learn about the greenhouse effect by conducting a hands-on experiment. By sealing plastic bottles and subjecting them to the simulated heat of a lamp, they will explore how our atmosphere traps heat and influences our planet's temperature.

This interactive lesson plan not only promotes scientific inquiry but also fosters a deeper understanding of the environmental challenges we face today. Through observation and data analysis, students will gain essential insights into a critical topic, equipping them with the knowledge and awareness needed to become responsible stewards of our planet.
