Warming Up!

by Janet Pinto

The hypothesis was that a higher heat capacity would mean better heat retention and that the stone would have the highest of both. The experiment was conducted in two phases.

Using a video as an introduction to the unit, many aspects of global warming and climate change are brought to the forefront. This is a heated debate in our society, so why not debate it in class? We do. Students break into groups for and against the idea humans must work to solve global warming right now. Both groups are provided the same informational resources in class and the rules for class debates. After the debate, students write a reaction and personal opinion paper about global warming.
