This Greenhouse Gas Game enables students to interact with each other as they learn about the heat trapping properties of greenhouse gases that contribute to climate change. They learn that human actions are altering the levels of greenhouse gases in our atmosphere. Teams explore how long it takes to reach the top of the Temperature Tracker based on human activity, with the winner taking the longest to reach the top of the Temperature Tracker.

Learning Objectives

  • Students engage in challenges that determine the fate of the Earth’s atmosphere.
  • Students learn that greenhouse gases are heat-trapping gases. 
  • Students learn that human actions are contributing to the levels of greenhouse gases in our atmosphere, and that these gases impact the livability of our planet.
