Challenge your students to develop a model of the Nitrogen Cycle using sets of cards displaying Nitrogen pools/actors and processes.
A highly engaging activity for students to make sense of vocabulary used in teaching the cycling of Nitrogen in the environment
Once students create the model, they will use their model to answer questions about the impacts of various scenarios on their model.
I am also including modified modeling cards and post modeling questions for use in your classes.
HS-ESS2-2 Analyze geoscience data to make the claim that one change to Earth's surface can create feedbacks that cause changes to other Earth systems.
HS-LS2-4. Use mathematical representations to support claims for the cycling of matter and flow of energy among organisms in an ecosystem.
Answer key is included.
