How can switching off a light or walking instead of riding in the car help solve the problem? Global Warming introduces young readers to the problems connected to the use of fossil fuels, the creation of greenhouse gases, and the changes in our climate that are damaging Earth. It also gives students plenty of ideas for ways that they can be part of the drive to cut greenhouse gases and help the planet. Filled with information perfectly suited to the abilities and interests of an early elementary audience, this colorful, fact-filled volume includes grade-appropriate activities and experiments, critical-thinking questions, and fascinating fact boxes to keep the pace lively and interactive.
