This activity teaches students about the amount of carbon in the different stores, e.g. ocean, atmosphere, and fossil fuels. It is a group activity designed for between 4 and 6 students. Students will also learn about how carbon passes from one store to another.
This activity looks at where the carbon is around the planet (carbon stores). It then moves on to consider how carbon moves between these stores (fluxes). Last, the focus will be on how human activity has altered carbon fluxes, and in turn the amount of carbon in each of the stores.
