The Albedo Effect in Action

45 minutes

Classroom work

One of the more drastic effects of climate change is the melting of the polar ice caps and sea-level rise due in part to the albedo effect. In this activity, students will be introduced to the albedo effect through an experiment and learn how it relates to climate change.

Learning outcomes

  • Basic understanding of the albedo effect
  • Ability to conduct an experiment and analyse findings
