Solar Boxes


In this lesson, students learn about the greenhouse effect and how excessive greenhouse warming on a global scale is affecting weather patterns around the world. They create solar boxes to simulate normal and excessive greenhouse effects and discuss how temperature is dependent upon environmental conditions. Students also explore how human activities that generate energy have contributed to these changes and how limiting our use of fossil fuels and promoting alternative energies can help address this problem. The lesson ends with students detailing and sharing ways we can all help reverse climate change for a more sustainable future.
