Over the course of several class periods, students engage in four activities related to carbon and its movement through the carbon cycle. In Part A and B students build molecular models to better understand some of the everyday reactions that allow carbon atoms to form different molecules and move from one place to another. Part C ties the previous parts together as students are introduced to, and do a basic analysis of, Earth’s major carbon sources, sinks, and associated fluxes. They also learn that when properly balanced, the carbon cycle helps maintain stable conditions, including average surface and ocean temperature. This kit is designed to be used with 32 students per class and contains no consumable materials. Contents: 16 molecular modeling sets (42 pieces/set), eight sets of carbon cards (8 cards/set), student worksheets and guide, and teacher’s guide.
