Teacher demonstration/student activity testing substances for carbon content.
In this activity students compare the properties of slime with clay.
In this demonstration students learn that plants respire too.
Students collect oxygen, as a by product of photosynthesis, and test it.
In this teacher demonstration students can observe gases being produced through the process of fermentation.
Across two simple activities students examine the solubility of carbon dioxide in cold and warm water. They then relate this to our oceans.
Learn more about the relationship between salinity and the solubility of carbon dioxide, and how that relates to carbon capture and storage here.
In this research activity students examine sediment and rocks as a carbon sink.
In this activity students take all they have learnt from this unit and use it to assemble a carbon cycle poster.
In this activity students examine data and categorise it as primary, secondary or proxy.
Students examine Carbon14 data and produce a graph for radioactive decay.
Activities to assist students with revision on carbon and the carbon cycle.
