Demonstrate understanding of:

  1. the causes of global warming
  2. one effect of global warming;
  3. what is being done to contain that effect

Include calls to action – with specific action plans, such as conserve water by…., reduce energy use by …, reduce pollution by…, etc.

Defining Global Warming Terms

Posted by Mrs. Ibrahim | Posted in 4th GATErs, ePals, Inquiry, Science, Uncategorized | Posted on October 27, 2010

Today we will work in partners to define an academic term (using a circle map) having to do with MR900104564global warming. You will do some research to help you understand the term and then write about it on the wiki. Then, you will need to find or create a picture that shows your word.  

The next time we meet, we will be emailing our ePals about what we have learned so far, so read a lot about global warming!

Here are some links to get you started:

In searching for information to support us in our 4th grade project on Global Warming, I found a group called 350.0rg that is hosting a party to help fight global warming.  What is 350? 350 is the level of CO2 in the atmosphere that is safe.  Right now we are at 390 ppm.

What can you do to help?
