Even secondary students need some games! This simple, full-color, interactive board game can be used as an introduction to biogeochemical cycles or a review after learning. Student worksheets during game play and conclusion questions ensure that your students will have a great understanding of the Nitrogen Cycle steps upon finishing this game. Not to mention how much fun they'll have!

➤Included in this bundle are the following items:

1. A game board (in multiple sizes for easy printing)

2. Set-up instructions for teacher

3. A student background page on biogeochemical cycles with vocabulary

4. Game play instructions for students

5. Set of 54 game cards

6. A game tracker page for student log of game play

7. Comprehension questions

8. Answer keys

The only materials not included are game pieces for each student and dice.

➤Digital Update: Google Slides versions of the student pages are included for students to type on. A digital game board is also included with movable game pieces. Dice and game cards will still need to be used in a traditional format in order for the game to proceed.

➤My Environmental Science Series includes lessons for each sphere of the earth:

1. Hydrosphere Bundle (in digital/paperless or print versions)

2. Biosphere Bundle (in digital/paperless or print versions)

3. Atmosphere Bundle (in digital/paperless or print versions)

4. Geosphere/Lithosphere (in digital/paperless or print versions)

Use mathematical representations to support claims for the cycling of matter and flow of energy among organisms in an ecosystem. Emphasis is on using a mathematical model of stored energy in biomass to describe the transfer of energy from one trophic level to another and that matter and energy are conserved as matter cycles and energy flows through ecosystems. Emphasis is on atoms and molecules such as carbon, oxygen, hydrogen and nitrogen being conserved as they move through an ecosystem. Assessment is limited to proportional reasoning to describe the cycling of matter and flow of energy.
Use a computational representation to illustrate the relationships among Earth systems and how those relationships are being modified due to human activity. Examples of Earth systems to be considered are the hydrosphere, atmosphere, cryosphere, geosphere, and/or biosphere. An example of the far-reaching impacts from a human activity is how an increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide results in an increase in photosynthetic biomass on land and an increase in ocean acidification, with resulting impacts on sea organism health and marine populations. Assessment does not include running computational representations but is limited to using the published results of scientific computational models.
