In this interactive diagram game and student assessment page, students have the opportunity to gain an understanding of the many processes in the carbon cycle and how it impacts all living things. Students begin the activity reading through a guided set of cards and following the steps to create a detailed diagram of the carbon cycle. Once they have a basic understanding of it, they can then create the diagram without guidance and answer higher-level thinking questions to begin to better apply what they know. The activity is designed to move students from working through a collaborative learning experience to a point where they can demonstrate their individual mastery of the carbon cycle and its processes.

Disciplinary Core Ideas
LS1.C: Organization for Matter and Energy Flow in OrganismsAs matter and energy flow through different organizational levels of living systems, chemical elements are recombined in different ways to form different products. (HS-LS1-6),(HS-LS1-7)
LS2.B: Cycles of Matter and Energy Transfer in Ecosystems
Photosynthesis and cellular respiration are important components of the carbon cycle, in which carbon is exchanged among the biosphere, atmosphere, oceans, and geosphere through chemical, physical, geological, and biological processes. (HS-LS2-5)
Systems and System Models, Energy and Matter
Biology 12E describe the flow of matter through the carbon and nitrogen cycles and explain the consequences of disrupting these cycles;
