The Nitrogen Cycle
Resource Types: Kits
Students will be introduced to the concept of cycling nutrients. They will explore the nitrogen cycle by creating a diagram with magnets and by taking on the role of a nitrogen atom traveling through the nitrogen cycle. A discussion at the end of the lesson will ask students to consider how humans impact the nitrogen cycle.
