Product Details

What is the greenhouse effect? How did it get this name? Set up model mini-greenhouses and demonstrate the principles of the greenhouse effect for your students. In less than one class period, the measured temperature differences in the mini-greenhouses will be dramatic and reflect the exact trend that the greenhouse effect is having on the planet Earth. The results from this demonstration will serve as a launch pad for further research and stimulate lively discussion about the significance of the world data being collected. The mini-greenhouse bottles, stopper and reflecting flags are provided in the demonstration kit and can be reused many times. Teacher Demonstration Notes included.

Concepts: Absorption, reflection, greenhouse effect.
Time Required: 30 minutes
Materials Prodivded: Aluminum strips, black construction paper, soda bottles, rubber stoppers.
