   View Standards     Standard(s): [SC2015] ES6 (6) 7 :
7 ) Use models to construct explanations of the various biogeochemical cycles of Earth (e.g., water, carbon, nitrogen) and the flow of energy that drives these processes.

Subject: Science (6)
Title: Let's Talk About the Nitrogen Cycle
Description:

This activity will utilize the talking drawings strategy, in which the teacher will introduce the nitrogen cycle using an interactive presentation to explain this biogeochemical cycle in a pictorial format. As the teacher describes the process during the presentation, the students will create their own annotated diagram to model the nitrogen cycle.

This activity results from the ALEX Resource Development Summit.

Title: Let's Talk About the Carbon Cycle
Description:

This activity will utilize the talking drawings strategy, in which the teacher will introduce the carbon cycle using an interactive presentation to explain this biogeochemical cycle in a pictorial format. As the teacher describes the process during the presentation, the students will create their own annotated diagram. Lastly, students will discuss how humans have affected the carbon cycle since the industrial revolution.

[SC2015] BIOL (9-12) 8 :
8 ) Develop and use models to describe the cycling of matter (e.g., carbon, nitrogen, water) and flow of energy (e.g., food chains, food webs, biomass pyramids, ten percent law) between abiotic and biotic factors in ecosystems.

Subject: Science (6 - 12)
Title: Where Does the Carbon Go?
Description:

The Carbon Cycle Game models the path that a carbon atom might take as it cycles through the earth and its atmosphere. Students visit six different reservoirs and learn facts about the carbon atom in each reservoir. Students are presented with questions after the carbon atom moves from a reservoir. They must visit all six reservoirs, answering questions as they move through the cycle.

This activity results from the ALEX Resource Gap Project.
