Earth Science Activity for Earth Day

Northview students in Mr. Knight’s Earth Science class participated in a classroom activity in honor of Earth Day 2022. One of the exercises included imagining themselves as a carbon atom moving through the Earth system. By the roll of a dice they were taken on a random ride around the classroom through a model of Earth’s carbon cycle. This included a summarization of being trapped in coal for millions of years and combusting into the atmosphere.

Through this activity students learned how all of Earth’s spheres (hydrosphere, biosphere, geosphere, and atmosphere) are connected through the carbon cycle by biological, physical, and human-centered processes.
