The Students of A.C.T. Club we're introduced to the cause and effects of Global Warming.
Global Warming occurs when there is an increase in temperature in the Earth's
atmosphere. The increase in temperature is caused by the greenhouse gas effect that increases the levels of carbon dioxide, chlorofluorocarbons, and other
The effects of Global Warming over a long period of time will be detrimental to the environment. Global Warming may eventually transform Earth into an uninhabitable planet.
The students participated in a group discussion on Global Warming and completed worksheets and art work demonstrating their knowledge on the causes of Global Warming and what can be done to counter it's effect. The students also watched several videos on the topic including a clip from the popular Fox Network mini series Cosmos
and a fun educational animated short Climate Tales
funded by NASA. In our discussion we talked about the importance of preserving the environment by "Going Green" which means to take actions against waste, pollution and exhausting fossil fuels.
Below are some comments that the students made based on their experience during the Global Warming lesson:
"The Global Warming cartoon was funny because the fish was old" - Jermaine Washington
"In the cartoon the trees were cut down and the air was polluted" - Joshua Jones
