The purpose of this WebQuest is to inform students of the current problems that face our environment and the effects humans have on it. This WebQuest will give students a basic understanding of global warming and will help them to see their responsibility in caring for their environment.


Over the past 100 years the temperature on Earth has increased by 1 degree Fahrenheit. Why is this happening? Could we be causing the Earth to warm up? If so, what do you think will happen to the Earth? Is there anything we can do to stop it?



Global warming is a real issue that MUST be addressed immediately! You and your team of scientific advisors need to investigate the causes and effects of global warming in order to come up with a proposal to prevent further damage.
