The lesson begins with students being asked to ‘Think > Pair > Share’ their ideas about the factors which may be contributing to an increase of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere. Once students have had a chance to discuss their ideas about this, they can feed their ideas back to the class, their answers can then be self-assessed using the answers provided.
Students will now watch a video about the greenhouse effect, whilst watching this video they will answer a set of questions. Once this task has been completed, they can self-assess their work using the mark scheme provided.
Students will now copy and complete the diagram depicting the greenhouse effect by choosing the correct statements to fill in the boxes. Students are then able to peer-assess their work once complete, using the mark scheme provided.
Students will now each be given a card of information which describes one of the effects of global warming on the environment, they will need to walk around the room to share information with each other in order to complete the summary table.
Lastly, students will be given a set of key word groups and will need to link all three words to form a summary sentence about what they have learned this lesson.
