Rebecca has been reading on the news that global climate change is a big problem these days. She wants to know more about it, so she does extensive research to discover how climate change has been affecting the levels of ice in the North Pole. For her research, Sally finds information about the average monthly temperatures in the Arctic, as well as the average depth of ice at the North Pole for each month. She also researches the concentration of atmospheric carbon dioxide. She takes data from several scientific and government sources, and calculates the averages over the past twenty years. She then takes this data and creates several graphs that show the relationship between atmospheric carbon dioxide levels, average Artic temperatures, and the average depth of Artic sea ice over the North Pole.

Sally wanted to know if plants would grow better in light or without light. She designed an experiment where she used three plants that were grown in natural lighting and three plants that were placed in a dark room with no lights. Her hypothesis was: If plants are grown in a room with natural light, then they will grow better than plants with no light, because plants require light to perform photosynthesis.
