Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan (link is external) on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform (link is external).

Carbon Dioxide and Climate Change


Students will graph carbon dioxide data from the past 55 years to gain an understanding of the trends we see occurring. They will need to graph, interpret, and correlate the data as they answer questions in this activity.

Learning Targets: 
Students will be able to describe the trends in the amount of carbon dioxide over the past 50 years.
Students will understand how the change in carbon dioxide concentrations affects the world's temperatures.
Students will understand what the main greenhouse gases are and how they increase the earth's temperature.
