Option 1: Quiz: Activity 3—Is It Only Natural? – After finishing the activity, have students complete this 5-question quiz to check their understanding. The quiz asks questions about the factors that can affect Earth’s climate.
To grant students access, simply provide them with this abbreviated, case-sensitive link: http://bit.ly/IsItOnlyNatural. For troubleshooting tips, visit the Carbon & Climate Introduction or Technical Support page.
Option 2: Use students’ posters from the activity to assess their understanding of the concepts.
Option 3: Challenge students to examine the data they have collected and to construct an argument related to present day climate change with the Constructing an Argument student page as a guide. Be sure that students understand the elements required in their argument, including claim, evidence, and reasoning (see the Background for more information). Use a rubric, such as the Is It Only Natural? Evaluation Rubric teacher page, to assess their work.
