Activity Overview


When learning about the processes in the carbon cycle, it can be extremely helpful for students to create a diagram! In this activity, students will create a carbon cycle diagram and show the movement of carbon through the cycle. Students should also explain each process in their diagram. The finished posters can be printed out or used as a presentation!

You can modify this activity by giving students a list of processes to include in the their diagrams or provide them with a scene already in place and have them fill in the labels. Extend this activity by having students examine what happens when the organic remains don’t decompose and fossil fuels are made.
