Science experiment Science Experiment The Greenhouse Effect In A Jar This simple experiment serves as an introduction to the greenhouse effect. You can see for yourself the effects of a greenhouse, and relate this understanding to what occurs in our atmosphere. Materials: 2 Small thermometers

1 Jar or other see-through container 1 Clock or watch 1 Copy of the worksheet Sunlamp or access to a sunny area to perform the experiment Roles: Timer: _______________________ Reader # 1: ____________________ Reader # 2: ____________________ Recorder: ______________________

Instructions: 1) Place the two thermometers in the sunlight for a few minutes to let them get warm. 2) Record the readings (write the temperatures) of both thermometers at the top of the columns. 3) Record the time next to the starting temperatures and place the jar over thermometer #1. 4) Every minute, record the readings of both thermometers without disturbing them.
