This is a full 5E designed for inquiry. It is advanced enough for AP, but accessible for on-level Biology or Environmental Science students.
Students will love going outside to measure trees at your school or nearby park using inexpensive materials. After measuring, students will use formulas (given) to calculate the carbon sequestration of that tree. Students will then use a computer website to calculate more ecosystem services. The Elaborate section introduces students to deforestation and sustainable forestry using several mini-videos found on the web. The Evaluate asks students to enter information about trees, deforestation and forestry on a graphic organizer.
