These gap-fill exercises let you practice useful conservation terminology. Read about international efforts to control global warming as you practice. (You can review other academic vocabulary at the same time. )
For basic climate change vocabulary, start with Climate Change and Weather Vocabulary instead. (That's words like affect, emissions, fossil fuels, etc.) Then come back to this page to learn more.
Use the context clues, prefixes, and suffixes to help you decide which word should go in each gap. (Especially notice the suffixes. They can tell you whether a word is a verb, noun, or adjective. That's a clue for which words might fit in a particular place in the sentence.)
Instructions: Type your answers in the gaps. Choose the best word from the list at the beginning of each section. (See the lists that start with 'assembled,' 'approximate,' and 'advocates.')
If you want a clue, click on the question mark after each gap or the first letter o the word. (The game will subtract a point or more for each hint.)
When you have entered all the answers, click on the "Check" button to check your answers.

Note in 2019: These are old articles, and the information in the exercise is also old now, but I'm keeping it, not as news but for the vocabulary practice-- it's main purpose from the beginning. For more recent information, check a reliable news source (of course!)
