Global Warming Lapbook

Creating a Global Warming Lapbook is a good way to teach your children about identifying problems, taking action to solve problems and is helpful in developing discussion and analyzing skills. 

If you read my Go in Peace page you know that I put a different spin on the topic of Global Warming.

Here, however, I will broach the subject of creating a lapbook on the subject of Global Warming in its normal context.
