Teaching Tips

This "Stand Alone" resource can be included in a larger lesson or activity focused on greenhouse gases.

The cards do not come with a lesson plan but could be used in multiple creative ways such as, trading cards, game pieces, flash cards, developing stories using the characters, or possibly as a starting point for further research of gasses.

Background information on greenhouse gasses can be found on the webpage.

Printable pages can be made into hard copy cards to use manually.
