Global Systems

In this module, students will be able to explain the short and long-term impacts of landfills and how incineration of waste materials affects the quality of the environment. Students will be able to explain how physical and chemical processes cause carbon to cycle through the earth, explain how solar energy causes water to cycle through the earth, and explain how the accumulation of mercury, phosphates, and nitrates affects the quality of water and organisms. They will also be able to explain the chemical composition of acids and bases and the changes of pH in neutralization reactions. Students will design and conduct an experiment to investigate the effect of acid rain on various building materials in order to make a recommendation to the town council as to the best material to use for a new statue.

Suggested grade level: Middle and High School
