Title: Photosynthesis, Trees, and the Greenhouse Effect     
Description: In this lesson, from Xpeditions, students study photosynthesis and then then transfer their understanding of this topic to a consideration of how trees can help reduce the negative impacts of the greenhouse effect. They read a Web page describing the greenhouse effect, carbon dioxide's role as a greenhouse gas, and the role of humans in exacerbating this effect. Students also browse the Web site of an organization that sponsors tree planting programs and consider how these programs might help reduce or slow down the increase of the greenhouse effect. They conclude by writing paragraphs telling younger kids about the benefits of trees and plants.
