The module contains 5 activities (Earth's Changing Climates; Interactions Within the Atmosphere; Sources, Links, Feedbacks; Feedbacks of Ice and Clouds; and Using Models to Make Predictions). Each activity provides information in simulations, text, video, or graphic format and the students enter answers to both open-ended and closed questions within the program. Students can print a report of their answers at the end of the activity. A teachers guide and PDF of instructions is also available.|
