Develop models showing the biological, geological, and anthropogenic impacts to the carbon cycle in the classroom. In this series of 4 activities, students explain the patterns in atmospheric carbon dioxide data over the past 800,000 years. They describe biogeochemical cycles; analyze atmospheric carbon dioxide data; explore biological, geological, and anthropogenic processes dealing with the carbon cycle; conduct an activity to explore a method of carbon sequestration; and then play a game to model some of the anthropogenic impacts on the carbon cycle.

Curriculum Connection
While designed for a stand-alone earth science course, this series of activities could be incorporated into a high school biology course during a unit on biogeochemical cycling or following a unit on photosynthesis and cellular respiration.

Time Requirement
Teacher prep, 105 minutes. Completing the activities, approximately 2 weeks (320 minutes).

Digital Resources
Includes 1-year access to digital resources that support 3-dimensional instruction for NGSS. Digital resources may include a teacher manual and student guide, pre-lab activities and setup videos, phenomenon videos, simulations, and post-lab analysis and assessments.

Performance Expectation(s)
HS-ESS2-6. Develop a quantitative model to describe the cycling of carbon among the hydrosphere, atmosphere, geosphere, and biosphere.
HS-ESS3-6. Use a computational representation to illustrate the relationships among Earth systems and how those relationships are being modified due to human activity.
