Most of the challenges facing the environment are due to the fact that the human population is straining the Earth's finite resources. Fortunately, preteens and teens are in a stage in life where they can embrace idealistic goals and get involved in causes that are important to them. Science teachers have the opportunity to empower their students and put them on the road to making positive changes to the environment. "Environmental Science Experiments" offers students and teachers the tools to explore various environmental issues. Through 20 new hands-on activities, students can learn more about environmental problems and what can be done to solve them. Facts, figures, charts, and reports efficiently dispense information about the environment and help raise awareness about timely issues. Full-color illustrations, an index, a glossary, and print and Web resources round out this accessible new volume.
