Carolina EcoKits®: Contributors to the Carbon Cycle
Grades 9-12. Students study the effects of plant photosynthesis and animal respiration on carbon dioxide concentrations in a closed system using a bromthymol blue solution. In this 4-day lab exercise, students formulate and test a hypothesis around how plants and animals recycle carbon in an ecosystem. Then, students simulate the burning of fossil fuels by adding carbon dioxide to the ecosystem and observing the effects. Kit accommodates a class of 30 students working in 10 groups of 3.
