Synopsis
  • In this interactive textbook lesson, students will read text, view a video, and interpret data to understand the causes and effects of global warming. 
  • The video explains global warming through a quantum physics perspective. 
  • The lesson concludes with chapter reflection questions and an interactive quiz. 
Teaching Tips

Positives

  • The quiz at the end of the chapter allows students and teachers to gain immediate feedback.
  • Teachers can edit and add additional resources to the chapter before assigning the lesson to the class. 
  • When signed in, students have access to a toolbar that allows them to highlight, note-taking, view summaries, and additional resources about the chapter.

Additional Prerequisites

  • Students should have a basic understanding of global warming.
  • Students should be able to analyze and interpret line graphs.
  • Teachers and students must sign in to use some of the interactive features.
  • There are some grammatical errors in the text.

Differentiation

  • Students could make a chart showing the causes and effects of global warming that are outlined in the lesson.
  • The video will offer physics classes a number of interesting topics to discuss.
Scientist Notes
This resource connects weather and climate and explores the impact of climate change. However, these human activities have accelerated CO2 and the resultant effect is causing various natural disasters. This resource is recommended for teaching.
