Carbon Cycle

Learning Goals

Learning Goals

1. List factors that contribute to transfer of carbon within Earth's systems. 

2. Describe how those factors contribute to an increase or decrease of carbon within Earth's systems. 

3. Create a model of the carbon cycle including the informaiton from goals 1 and 2.

Steps to Complete Learning Goals

Work through the resources listed to learn about the carbon cycle.  With each resource, take notes on the factors that affect the carbon cycle and if they increase or decrease carbon in a system.  Then create a model with the information learned.  When finished, take the assessment. 

 

 

Resource 1: Carbon Cycle Game

Go to the simulation linked below.  When working through the simulation, take notes in a table like the one listed below.

Resource 2: Carbon Cycle Video

Go to the video linked below.  While watching the video, pause and take notes in a table like the one listed below.

Carbon Cycle Model

Create a model of the carbon cycle.  Use arrows to show carbon moving from one place ot another.  Along the arrow write the names of processes and the process is increasing or decraseing the carbon within that part of Earth. 

Assessment

Work through the assessment (Google forms) after you complete the previous sections.
