Climate: A Balancing Act

Type of Resource



In this activity students learn how Earth’s energy balance is regulating climate. This activity is lesson 4 in the nine-lesson module Visualizing and Understanding the Science of Climate Change.

Performance Expectations

HS-ESS2-2   Analyze geoscience data to make the claim that one change to Earth's surface can create feedbacks that cause changes to other Earth systems.

HS-ESS2-4   Use a model to describe how variations in the flow of energy into and out of Earth’s systems result in changes in climate.
