Summary Information


Surface temperature, human activity/development, design constraints

Performance Expectation:

PE MS-ESS3-3 Apply scientific principles to design a method for monitoring and minimizing a human impact on the environment. PE MS-ETS1-1: Define the criteria and constraints of a design problem with sufficient precision to ensure a successful solution, taking into account relevant scientific principles and potential impacts on people and the natural environment that may limit possible solutions.

Estimated Time Required:

3-5 hours

Lesson Overview:

They will be addressing the driving question: How can human activities affect the environment’s surface temperature?
