Units included with this Open Author resource:
- Unit 1 SC.HS.13 Earth's Systems
- NE Science, Carbon Cycle, Earth System Science, Earth System
- NE.SC.HS.13.3.A, NE.SC.HS.13.3.E
This is a unit plan where students will understand how Earth is systems of interacting components (spheres) and how changing one sphere will affect another. The carbon cycle is studied in quantity of carbon in each reservoir and how human and natural processes move carbon from one reservoir to another in two different time scales. The carbon cycle is studied qualitatively through demonstrations or labs with students developing models of the from of carbon in each reservoir.
