This activity focuses on the processes in the global carbon cycle. It can be played individually or in small groups of two to four. Each player will move their counter around the board using the instructions. Players will use a dice to see how their carbon counter will move around the different stores in the carbon cycle.
This activity is designed to review the processes involved in the global carbon cycle. It can be used as a standalone activity, with subject knowledge revision of each of the processes included under the Find out more tab.
Download the board and instructions from the What you’ll need tab and print a copy for each of group or individual. Each group will need a dice, and each individual will need a counter such as a pen top or coin, as well as a copy of the record sheet.
As a reference for the processes, students can view the Carbon cycle interactive (intermediate).
