The majority of scientific reports suggest that the Earth will be soon facing climate change as the Earth increases in temperature. Global warming is the increase in the average temperature of the Earth. The increase in temperature may only be a few degrees, however, this slight change could have a profound impact on the Earth's polar ice caps. In the past 100 years, the Earth has warmed by one degree Fahrenheit. There are many possible causes of global warming. The melting of the ice in Antarctica, Greenland and other land locked glaciers is a big concern for scientists.

A good introduction to global warming for students can be found at: The Environmental Protection Agency Climate Change Kid's site Group Size: Any. STEM - Additional STEM Resources. STEM Education Resource Center. Welcome to PBS Teachers STEM Education Resource Center!
