Climate of Our Past

Students examine the role of greenhouse gases in our atmosphere. Students then look at ways scientists determine what climate was like millions of years ago and if there were historical changes in climate. Students conduct library and online searches to learn about ice cores, tree rings, coral reef cores, and glaciers, then develop a class presentation.
