Observe the Greenhouse Effect in a Jar
Kids can see for themselves how a greenhouse works, and relate this understanding to the greenhouse effect that occurs in Earth's atmosphere. It's a great opportunity to practice key science skills such as observing and recording data, using a control, and drawing conclusions from results. And a great chance to do some learning outside!
What You Need:
- 2 small thermometers
- Pen or pencil
- 1 jar or other clear container
- 1 clock or watch
- Access to a sunny area to perform the experiment, inside or outside
