    Activity
    There are four stations where students practice and build the concept that carbon cycles between reservoirs. Each station represents a lesson, and student cycle through the stations to learn from each lesson.

    Activity
    Students will learn act out polymerization by performing dehydration synthesis and hydrolysis using chemistry models. Students will also model breaking of one biomolecule to make a different biomolecule. Students will be able to model how polymers are made and how polymers are broken. Students will also be able to describe how the atoms in one macromolecule can be use use to make a different macromolecule.

    Activity
    Students will learn about the inputs and outputs of photosynthesis by building ball and stick chemical models. Students will also experience the law of conservation of matter by breaking CO2 and H2O into Glucose and O2. Students will be able to write a CER answering the question: How are the atoms in carbon dioxide and water related to the glucose molecule and oxygen molecules synthesized in photosynthesis?
