This site from SERC's Starting Point presents sample Gallery Walk questions about the composition of the atmosphere. These questions encourage students to examine atmospheric and greenhouse gases, human influences on climate change, proposed new products to minimize UV exposure, and ways people currently protect themselves from UV exposure. The questions are organized according to the cognitive level at which students are engaged, using Bloom's Taxonomy.

In this activity, learners use chocolate to explore how the Sun transfers heat to the Earth through radiation. Learners compare the melting rate between chocolate left in the sunshine and chocolate left in the shade outside for twenty minutes on a hot sunny day. Use this demonstration to introduce learners to solar radiation as well as the importance of summer safety and sun protection. Although this works best on a hot sunny day, this activity can be adapted for indoor use.
