SUMMARY: The world we live in has given us many beauties. However, we did not know its value. So it’s time to put the world at ease. In this lesson plan, students will learn what the greenhouse effect is, the gases that cause the greenhouse effect, the open structures of these gases and the effects of the greenhouse effect on living things. In addition, using technology in the lesson, he will show molecules in 3D, prepare promotional cards for them, and also embody how molecules are formed with animations they prepared. He will also turn all these learning activities into a presentation and will do this presentation by translating his mother tongue to English. This way, their language skills will improve as they learn.

WHAT DID WE DO?
First of all, in this lesson plan, I helped students find and discover what the greenhouse effect means.
Later, I allowed students to learn about the greenhouse effect with videos in the chemistry class.
In the biology lesson, the students were allowed to discuss the effects of the greenhouse effect on living things.
Since I know that Generation Z loves technology very much, I asked them to investigate the 3D states of the molecules that make up greenhouse gases and turn their findings into flash cards.
We made the greenhouse gas molecules that we learned in chemistry class 3D with play dough.
Students demonstrated the formation mechanisms of molecules that became 3D with a stop motion studio animation application.
Finally, I asked all working groups to present their work in class and gave them feedback.
