  1. Title: Global climate change
    Author: environment protection authority
    Sl1s: Global warming has affected the earth and animals, but mainly by humans.
    Survey:
    The earth’s climate is changing
    Warmer temperatures are causing other changes around the world
    People are causing these changes
    These changes affect people, plants and animals in their own ways

    Question:
    What is the main thing causing the climate to change?
    How are there changes added to high temperatures
    Why do people change the earth like this?
    How are they affected?

    Read:
    More than 100 years ago, people around the world started burning large amounts of coal, oil and natural gas.
    These extra gases are causing earth to get warmer.

    Recite:
    The earth is getting warmer because people are adding heat trapping gases into the atmosphere, mainly by burning fossil fuels. These gases are called greenhouse gases.
    Warmer temperatures are causing are changes in the world, such as melting glaciers and stronger storms. These changes are happening because earth’s air, water and land are all linked to climate.
    People change the earth because we make pollution, we make gases and we destroy forests. Some of us has lately been lazy and can’t find other ways to stop this. This is how they change the earth like it is now.
    Each and every animal in the world is affected because they each have their biomes, but have somehow been destroyed. Like humans can do deforestation to animals that live in the forest, or global warming can affect marine life by making droughts.

    Review:
    I think it is very horrible about what’s been going on lately with global warming. Forests are getting burned down, snow/ice caps are melting and sea is getting hotter. But I think that it’s even more horrible that humans think about themselves too much and decide to cut down trees, build houses on grass land and making pollution to join in with global warming. I think that the government should really make a fix about this, and give people a $500-$1000 bill, cut down a minimum of 5 trees a month and making less gas cars and more electronic cars.

  2. Title: climate change
    Author: environment protection authority
    SL1S: our world is changing always with gases and other things.

    Key words:
    Atmosphere
    Temperature
    Climate
    Glaciers

    Questions:
    What is the atmosphere?
    Does the temperature stay the same?
    What is the climate?
    What are glaciers?

    Main ideas:
    The earth is getting warmer and warmer because people are adding heat trapping gases to the earths atmosphere, mainly by burning fossil fuels.
    People are causing these changes, which were bigger and happening faster than any climate changes that modern society has ever seen before.

    Recite:
    The atmosphere is what keeps oxygen from outer space so without the earths atmosphere we wouldn’t be able to survive and we would become extinct.
    In climate change the temperature stays roughly the same but the temperature is either colder or warmer then it would normally be.
    The climate is the air and temperature on the earth.
    Glaciers are ice floating in the in the salt-water on the earth.

    Review:
    This text is about how climate change is affecting the globe. I think the text gave a little bit of information on climate change. The horrible thing about climate change it can be hard to recognise the change and things are melting and getting burnt down so people pay to rebuild the things that re broken during the change. Climate change is killing the environment by destroying trees plants and is also destroying habitats so then the animals are getting harmed what gives them more chance of becoming extinct. This terrible that humans are letting this happen and they are not doing anything about it apart from making it badder for the environment by harming animals by their habitats getting destroyed and effecting them lots of different ways.

  3. SQ3R On Global Climate change
    Title: Global Climate Change
    Author: Environment Protection Authority ( E.P.A )
    SL1S: The point is to inform us about global warming.

    Key Words:
    Always Changing
    Climate
    Greenhouse Gases
    Burning Fossil Fuels
    Melting Glaciers
    Atmosphere

    Questions:
    How long will it be until all the glaciers melt?
    How does green house gasses affect us?

    Reading:
    More than 100 years ago, people around the world started to burn large amounts of coal, oil, and natural gasses to power their homes.

    Recite:
    I am inferring that the glaciers will melt in about 50 or so years.
    The green house gasses affect us because they are being trapped in our atmosphere and they come back down to earth and effect our plants and other life.

    Review:
    Our climate is changing, we need to try and make more friendly things for our environment like electronic cars and get lots more solar panels and wind generators. We need to help the environment and save ourselves from mass destruction caused from within.

    Sl1s:Our world is changing always.

    Key words!
    1.weather
    2.change
    3.earth
    4.warmer

    Questions!
    1.What is the weather doing?
    2.What is changing?
    3. Why is the earth changing ?
    4.Is the earth getting warmer?

    Read!
    1. The earth is getting warmer because people are adding heat and trapping the gases to the Atmosphere, mainly by burning fossil fuels.

    Recite!
    1.The weather is changing the climate.
    2.The weather and the earth are changing.
    3/4.Yes the world is getting warmer because people are polluting.

    Review!
    I think people should stop polluting our atmosphere so we can have fresh air to breath in . People should stop polluting so animals and plants can live.I think that the weather changes the climate because it changes the climate and the weather to help earth. I think that gases make it get much more hotter then it’s meant to be and the weather makes it hotter than its meant to be.

  5. Title: Global Climate change
    Author: Environment Protection Authority
    Survey:
    1. Earth’s climate is changing
    2. Peoples activities are the main cause
    3. Melting glaciers
    4. Stronger storms
    5. Carbon dioxide
    Questions:
    1. How is earth’s climate changing?
    2. Why don’t people do more to stop being the cause if it’s already proven they are?
    3. What would happen if all the glaciers melted?
    4. How does the storms intensity increase?
    5. How Is carbon dioxide the main reason for climate change?

    Read:
    1. The earth has changed before, but this time it’s different.
    2. The changes are happening faster and more intense than any climate changes that modern society has ever seen
    3. More than 100 years ago, people around the world started burning large amounts of coal, oil and natural gas to power their homes, factories and vehicles. Today, most of the world relies on fossil fuels for energy. Burning fossil fuels releases carbon dioxide, a heat trapping gas, into the atmosphere, which is the main reason for climate change.

    Recite:
    1. Earth’s climate is changing by all the heat-trapping gasses that are warming up the world!
    2. I think some people just don’t believe climate change is real, and some people might not care because they’ll probably die before they have to deal with it!
    3. Maybe the sea levels will rise and will be more flooding and bigger tsunamis. Some animals need the ice to be safe from predators in the ocean like sharks and killer whales.
    4. Storms intensity will increase because the temperature is rapidly changing both freezing and hot temperatures. This will cause more things like heat waves, tornados, cyclones and extreme flooding!
    5. Carbon dioxide is a heat trapping gas that keeps heat inside the atmosphere which causes climate change to be faster and more intense.

    Review:
    This text is about climate change and how it affects the planet and how it can rapidly increase the quantity and intensity of natural disasters. I think global warming needs to be addressed immediately. Imagine suffering from constant drought, floods, tornados and heat waves. Watching poor innocent people repetitively die or become seriously injured because YOU didn’t help take care of the planet. Climate change is natural but is strongly assisted by humans. I believe it will become one of the most serious matters on earth in the coming years. Hundreds, thousands and even millions of people will die because we didn’t look after our planet. And although we can’t turn climate change around, we can slow it down and even almost stop it!

  6. Climate change SQ3R
    Title: Global Climate Change
    Author: Environment protection authority (EPA )
    Sl1S: This article is about how the earth has different change because of climate change.
    Survey:
    Heat-trapping 
    Atmosphere
    Climate change
    Green house gas
    Question: 
    What is heat-trapping?
    What does the atmosphere do?
    Why does climate change exist?
    Read:
    These changes are happening because the earth’s air, water and land are all linked the climate.
    People are causing these changes,which happening faster than any climate changes that modern society that even seen before.
    Recite:
    I believe heat trapping is loops of cold and hot water pressure between the atmosphere and the earth which makes the day’s hot and longer.
    The atmosphere helps the cold and hot air to stay in the earth and stops gravity from g into space.
    Climate change exist because if wedding have climate change we wouldn’t have weather or season.
    Review: 
    The article is about climate change and global warming and what they do to the earth and how they work. I believe that climate change and global warming are important to earth because if we didn’t have any of them there would be no season or weather.

    Questions:
    How does climate change effect the earth?
    It might get so hot or on the other hand it might get so cold.

    What does heat ness do to hurt people?
    It can get so hot that they just can’t stand it or they can’t breath or on the other hand they could sweat.

    What is climate change?
    When the weather changes to hot cold or dry.

    —————————————————————–
    Summary:
    A man made disaster has made a new breed of disaster and it is called climate change it is when the weather changes to cold hot or dry and it can kill people animals and other living things.

    It must be hard to survive in the desert you will need lots of water.
    It must be hard to survive in the heat ness you will have to stay in the shade.
    It must be hard to survive in the cold ness you will need to make a camp fire.

    Key words:
    Green house gases
    Climate change
    Carbon dioxide
    Temperature
    Atmosphere

    Questions
    How is the greenhouse gases making the earth warmer?
    What’s the difference between climate change and global warming?
    How can we stop carbon dioxide if we breath it out?
    What is causing the earths temperature to get warmer?
    How can the greenhouse gases get trapped inside the atmosphere?

    Read
    The earth is getting warmer because people are adding heat trapping gases to the atmosphere, mainly by burning fossil fuels. The earths climate has changed before but this time is different. People are causing these changes, which are happening faster than any climate changes that modern society has seen before.

    Recite
    1. Because the green house gases blocks the sun rays in and let’s some out instead of it going in and out. So when it blocks the sun rays in, it makes the earth warmer.

    2.The greenhouse gases get trapped into the atmosphere because the atmosphere is like a massive blanket around earth and if something were to get into it like a steam then it would just hit the top of the blanket and heat things under it.

    Review: I think that climate change is one of the worst problems on the planet because global warming can create any type of disaster such as tsunamis, floods, earthquakes, cyclones and tornados. Global warming is a natural disaster that happens everyday assisted by humans. It’s caused by humans as well because the factories, boats and other transport or structure vomits out a lot of gas releasing it out onto the open.

  9. I know all that because I see the weather change from day all the way to mid day then nighttime.

    Question: how do strong storms effects the earth and the impact on human lives.
    What is climate Chang and how does it affect living conditions.
    How does the atmosphere help the earth.

    Read: Climate Chang is get far more wares then it you’d to be because research is better the it used to be so people are finding more power sores so more power stations and factories are built witch makes more gas go into the air and global warming impacts the environment like killing the Corel ref and malting glaciers

    Recite: I infer that climate Chang impacts living conditions because of global warming, global warming makes the earth warmer witch make chances of a cyclone happening more because cyclones happens only when the water temperature is very worm. So it impacts human lives

  11. SQ3R -Climate change- A man-made disaster

    Title: Global climate change

    Author: Environment protection authority

    SL1S: the world is getting wet for the amount of times the climate is changing glaciers are melting and houses are getting damaged by string winds and storms.

    Survey-
    Our world is always changing
    The Earths climate is changing
    Melting glaciers
    Modern society
    Warmer temperatures

    Question-
    Why is our world always changing?
    Who is changing the worlds climate?
    Are the climates world changing wrecking/melting the glaciers?
    Is climate changing every modern society?
    What is making the warmer temperatures?

    Read-
    The earth is getting warmer because people are adding heat-trapping gases to the atmosphere, mainly by burning fossil fuels.
    Warmer temperatures are causing other changes around the world, such as melting glaciers and stronger storms.
    People are causing these changes, which are bigger and happening faster than any other climate changes that modern society has ever seen before.

    Recite-
    I think our world is always changing because new things become alive or new things become part of our lives and new people enter our world.

    I think we are causing the climate change because all the pollution the we are sending is changing the climate.

    I think the climate is wrecking/ melting the glaciers or the thing that could easily melt, and is destroying our environment!

    I think the climate is changing our modern society because our inurement is becoming destroyed and soon there will be nothing left if our world.

    The climate is making the warmer temperatures but what is making the climate is us with our pollution sending in.

    Review-
    Our world is always changing. The earth is getting warmer because people are adding heat and pollution to the world, which is making the climate change. These changes are happening because the Earths air, water, and land are all linked to the climate changing!

    Tittle:Earths climate is changing
    SLIS: The earth is changing because of global warming.
    Survey:
    -seasons
    -earths air
    -climate
    -heat-trapping gases
    -naturally

    Question:
    Did the season change because the climate was changing?
    Will the earths air change if the green house gases get in through our ozone layer?
    Why is the earths climate changing?
    Are we producing these heat trapping gases?
    Are the green house gases harming the human rase?

    Read:
    The earth is getting warmer because people are adding heat trapping gases to the atmosphere, mainly by burning of fossil fuel.
    More than 100 years ago, people around the world started to burning large amount of, coal, oil, and other natural gases to power their homes, factories and vehicles.

    Recite:
    It did because we are using fossil fuel for our cars and homes which lets out carbon dioxide.
    It will because the gases will effect our lungs if we breath it in.
    It’s changing because people are using to much gas to heat up there homes and to power there cars that relies on gas.
    We are powering these toxic gases by having anything relying on the gas like factories sending smoke around the world.
    It is harming us because the green house gases are global warming and if we turn gas behind us we will have a better chance of living because gas is toxic and putts holes in our o-zone layer, but if we change to electricity we will have a better chance.

    Review:
    In my own opinion the hole idea of using gas was not a good idea because the world does not rely on gas anymore now we rely on electricity so why do we still have gas when our future is electricity. If we keep chopping down trees it will harm us and the earth, because when we burn down (or chop) timber it releases a large amount of carbon dioxide which will put large holes in our o-zone layer. We are harming our future because we have chosen to use the toxic gases.

  13. SQ3R- Climate change- A man-made disaster. 14/AUG/ 2013

    Title: The global climate change

    Author: Environment protection Authority

    SLIS: People are making lots of changes happening around the world making the world extra warm.

    Survey-
    The Earths climate is changing
    Started burning large amounts of coal
    Earths air
    Around the world
    People are causing these changes

    Questions-
    What is causing the earths climate to change?
    How does burning large amounts of coal going to help the houses power?
    How does the earths air change the earth if its just different types of air released into the air?
    How come their are different types of changes around the world if the world is one big huge place with lots of countries and states?
    How can people make really huge changes like these on the world of the amount of people in the world can’t make the amount of changes?

    Read-
    The earths climate is changing too but it is really hard to see sometimes, unless you look outside your window for a long time then you might be able to see the climate change and if you look outside even longer you might see the seasons changing as well.
    These changes are happening because of the earths air, water and land because they are all linked into the climate.

    Recite-
    People have been causing the climate changes that are different to normal climate changes because they are faster and bigger then the normal climate changes. They are causing lots of climate change that is effecting the ocean and people.
    I think that the burning the coal is helping the home because in the olden days the only power you could get was from burning coal so then your homes, factories and vehicles could work and could be fully powered. But nowadays people are using fossil fuels for their energy needs.
    I think that when different types of smells and air are let out into the air, the air will be getting change to different other types of air. I think that the air can change if people are letting other air into the air.
    The earths having lots of air released into the air because all around the world different people are letting out different types of air so when one country lets out air it doesn’t go around the whole world making the world have the same air changes, the air stays in that place and other air is released in other counties.

    Review-
    Different types of changes are happening in the world and the earth has been changing because of the air that is being released on the air and also because of the greenhouse gases. These changes are being made by us humans. All the different types of gases being let out into the air is making the earth change in some sort of way. When we let out pollution in the air the earth changes in a way.
    Earths climate has been getting warmer because people have been adding heat-trapping gases into the atmosphere and they are called greenhouse gases. The atmospheres greenhouse gases are keeping the world warm for the plants and animals to live but people have been adding extra greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, these extra gases are making the earth warmer,setting changes all around the world. These changes are happening on land, in the oceans and in the atmosphere.

    Question: how do strong storms affects the earth and the impact on human lives.
    What is climate Chang and how does it affect living conditions.
    How does the atmosphere help the earth?
    Read: Climate Chang is get far more wares then it you’d to be because research is better the it used to be so people are finding more power sores so more power stations and factories are built which makes more gas go into the air and global warming impacts the environment like killing the Corel ref and melting glaciers
    Recite: I infer that climate Chang impacts living conditions because of global warming, global warming makes the earth warmer witch make chances of a cyclone happening more because cyclones happens only when the water temperature is very worm. So it impacts human lives.
    I infer that humans caused climate change by polluting the air which can cause global worming I and it affects how the weather changes and the climate.
    I think it helps the earth because if we did not have an atmosphere the earth would be very cold because the atmosphere keeps the razz of the sun in to worm up the air then it goes back out.

  15. Tittle: Global climate change
    Author: Environment Protection
    S.L.1.S: There is an ozone layer and that ozone layer keeps in all of the hot toxic gasses and then the ozone layer keeps it all inside space and then it heats up all of the earth.
    SERVEYING THE TEXT:
    -People
    -Climate change
    -Earth heats up
    -Ozone layer
    ASKING QUESTIONS:
    -why are they blaming it all on the people?
    -why is there climate change in the earth?
    -how can toxic gasses heat up the whole entire earth?
    -why is there an ozone layer that traps in all of the toxic gasses with the earth?
    READING THE TEXT:
    The earth is getting warmer because people are adding heat trapping gasses to the atmosphere, mainly by burning fossil fuels. Warmer temperatures are cusses other changes around the world, such as melting glaciers and stronger storms. The Earth’s climate has changed before, but this time it’s different. People are causing these changes, which are bigger than and happening faster than any climate change have been done before.
    RECITE THE QUESTION:
    -I think that they are blaming us humans because people are adding heat and are getting trapped into the atmosphere but it mainly with the humans that we are burning toxic waste and that we are burning all the time is fossils and fuels.
    -the toxic gasses are heating up that earth because the gasses are very hot like the sun and then the sun is shining on the gasses and then making that even hotter than it used to be.
    -there is climate change on the earth because its weather like stormy things like that and if we don’t have very bad storms and things we would have no bad weather but we need it so we can stay warm and cold at the same time because if we don’t have rain and storms there would be no water and we need water to live and drink and then if we had no sun we can just freeze to death and then die so we need climate change on earth
    -we need an ozone layer so if the toxic gasses go in to space the toxic gasses will take over the space so we need an ozone layer.
    REVIEW THE TEXT:
    There is an ozone layer around the earth that is making the gasses stay in the ozone layer and then the scientist are blaming us for it the climate change and then I don’t now like if we are the blame for all of this what will we do for all of this and my opinion is that we have to stop all of this.
