Blow your students' minds with the idea that the water we drink may have once been elephant urine. This lesson introduces the water, nitrogen, and carbon cycles and is perfect for a biology or ecology class. Lesson is designed for one ninety or two forty minute class periods.
Your purchase includes a detailed, 39 slide PowerPoint presentation (with links to suggested video clips and poster activity instructions) and student notes handout.
Students get to illustrate a water, carbon, or nitrogen cycle for an ecosystem of their choice, maximizing their interest and creativity. I enjoy helping them figure out how to apply common parts of the cycles to their chosen ecosystem.
