Source Two: Fossil Fuels Fossil Fuels Are Fuels Made From Burning Fossils Or Coal, And They Are Bad For The Environment Because When Burning Them Down To A Liquid You Create Excess Carbon Dioxide


  1. Explain what impact climate change is having on our environment. Include at least 2 examples.


Climate Change Has Many Impacts Like How In Some Places It Can Make The Ocean Rise And Swallow Up An Entire Island And In Others It Can Cause Droughts.


  1. What are greenhouse gases?


GreenHouse Gases Are Gases Produced By Humans And Animals Know As Farts And Burps, And They Are Harmful To The Environment Because They Contain Some Harmful Gases.


  1. How does deforestation contribute to climate change?


DeForestation Contributes to Climate Change Because Trees Absorb Carbon Dioxide And When You Cut The Down Or Burn Them There Is Nothing That Can Absorb The Smog\Air Pollution.


  1. Why is it important to reduce our carbon footprint?


It Is Important To Reduce Our Carbon Footprint Because Carbon Increases The Speed Of Climate Change, And If That Happens Then The Entire World Would End Up Destroyed Due To The Land Drying Up And Every Living Thing Die Of Thirst


  1. Do you think we, as New Zealanders,are doing a good job of slowing down climate change? Provide at least 2 reasons for your answer.

They stop moving as much and they become a solid


  1. Explain what happens to the molecules in a liquid when they are heated to their boiling point.


They liquid starts to evaporate and turn into gas


  1. What could be the reason for the fact that gases can be compressed more easily than solids or liquids?


The reason could be because the atoms in a gas can move freely and because of that they can then be compressed easily.


  1. Explain how each of these jobs might need to understand and work with different types of matter. (You may need to research to find out more)
