The greenhouse effect
Today’s teaching resource for green English combines an animation and a worksheet which demonstrate to students how excess carbon dioxide in the atmosphere leads to the greenhouse effect.
What is the Greenhouse Effect? – PowerPoint
This presentation of six slides developed in partnership with the Science Museum includes a colourful Flash animation showing how the greenhouse effect occurs.
What is the Greenhouse Effect? – Worksheet
In pairs students ask and answer questions about how and why the greenhouse effect occurs before completing a gap-fill exercise and talking about the animation using speaking prompts. Extensive teacher’s notes give options for group work and whole class activities.
For further tips for teaching green English, see:
Tip 1: renewable energy (worksheet)
Tip 3: the language of science (vocabulary)
Tip 4: greenwashing (dictation)
Tip 5: the vocabulary of geography (exercises)
For some reasons the animation part of the presentation doesn’t work:( at least on my computer)
Please try clicking on the link and downloading the file to your local machine. I hope that’ll work. Let me know if it doesn’t. Thank you.
This file is very well informed and easy to make students concentrate on the lsesson.
In short, this is best lesson plan.
I think very highly of it.
