What is one of today’s most popular buzzwords? If you said
“carbon”, then this lab is for you. Students are
inundated with comments about “carbon footprints” and
“carbon emissions”, so what is so important about this
little element? In this lab students connect previous knowledge
with current information relating to the carbon cycle. Students
identify the important role of carbon, discover the four main
processes of the carbon cycle, and illustrate the process of the
carbon cycle. Students conclude by analyzing the role of carbon in
their own life, and how carbon gets a bad reputation.
