   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.

[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?

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.
