  • Make this graphic into a poster and hang it in your classroom, or better yet, have students develop their own posters.
  • Could be used as a (pre-post) assessment tool to gauge students' understanding of a problem.

About the Science

  • Addresses a variety of solutions for combating global warming.
  • Passed initial science review - expert science review pending.

About the Pedagogy
