GCSE - Carbon & Nitrogen Cycle

You have two power points covering all aspects of the GCSE Biology syllabus covering the Carbon and Nitrogen Cycles. They are aimed at Higher Tier students but can be used with a good "intervention" group. The power points are separate so you can use in different lessons. Text is full of scientific terminology and includes diagrams and pictures to help with explanations. Thank you for taking the time to look at my resource and I hope you find it beneficial. Please feel free to leave feedback and to 'follow me' so as not to miss out on future helpful resources.

CB9i The Nitrogen cycle

Resource based on the edexcel 2016 spec (9-1) Note - This lesson does require additional worksheets from edexcel/ activeteach Starter: Testing pupils prior knowledge of definitions by identifying definitions of key words. Main: Includes all details about the nitrogen cycle, crop rotation and nitrogen fixing. Includes diagrams, videos, progress checks and tasks. Plenary: uses the evaluation tree for pupils to assess their own learning.

Nitrogen Cycle

Designed for AQA A-level Biology Unit 4 Section 3 - Nutrient Cycles. You will need counters and dice to play the game; the winner is the first person to visit all of the nitrogen reservoirs and return to the atmosphere. Students can use slide 2 on the PowerPoint to log their trips and - following a discussion with their competitors - be able to produce a complete diagram of the nitrogen cycle. They can then complete the exam questions (mark scheme included) to demonstrate their knowledge.

Nitrogen cycle

A worksheet and fully complete answer sheet which is aimed at A level Biology students and covers the nitrogen cycle.
Nitrogen Cycle Full LessonQuick View

Nitrogen Cycle Full Lesson

Lesson used for an observation and was highly praised. Full lesson about the nitrogen cycle which really breaks everything down but does not neglect suitable challenge and exam focus for GCSE students. Lesson includes full presentation; circus activity posters, worksheets and support sheets; starters and plenaries; extension work; mark schemes; literacy activities; and a full lesson plan.

A2 Biology- The Nitrogen cycleQuick View

A2 Biology- The Nitrogen cycle

This presentation was created and delivered for A level students studying the nitrogen cycle in the ecosystems topic however the resources are still relevant and applicable to GCSE and the vocabulary could be easily adapted. The resource is a clear detailed step by step guide to the nitrogen cycle each stage is clearly described and explained including nitrogen fixation ammonification and so on. it also later on shows ethical considerations in ecosystems including eutrophication.
Nitrogen Cycle - Draw It!Quick View

Nitrogen Cycle - Draw It!

An activity aimed at A-Level Biology students. This activity involves a series of statements that can be given to a class at the start of a lesson with the instruction that they draw the nitrogen cycle based on this information. Students should initially do this in pairs but can then be teamed up in larger groups to show, discuss and explain their own diagrammatic interpretations of the nitrogen cycle. Finally, the whole class can be brought together to discuss the best way of joining these statements together into an agreed nitrogen cycle. Key words: Nitrogen, cycle, ammonification, nitrification, denitrification, saprobiont, decay, symbiotic, rhizobium, azotobacter, decomposition, photosynthesis, respiration, combustion, fossilisation, assimilation, feeding, herbivore, carnivore, carbonate

Nitrogen Cycle

A worksheet aimed at A-Level Biology students which provides a neat summary of the key points in the Nitrogen Cycle. The resource covers naming of key compounds (nitrate, nitrite, ammonia, ammonium ions), deamination, ammonification, decomposition and denitrification. The resource also has two 'challenge' questions for more able students to apply their knowledge. Key words: Nitrogen cycle, ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, ammonium, deamination, ammonification, decomposition, denitrification
Nitrogen Cycle - researchQuick View

Nitrogen Cycle - research

A worksheet of questions related to the nitrogen cycle which students are required to research. Each series of questions is divided into separate categories according to which part of the cycle they relate to: nitrogen fixation, nitrification, ammonification, denitrification, etc. A useful worksheet to issue at the start of a topic as background research for students to gain familiarity with the key ideas. Keywords: Nitrogen, cycle, ammonifiication, denitrification, nitrification, saprobiont, decay, fixation

Nitrogen cycle pelmanism

Test pupils memory for the Nitrogen cycle by allowing them to work in groups, to produce large diagrams of the cycle itself.


A thorough and complete lesson plan, resources, answers etc in detailed user friendly ppt. which could easily spread two lessons, a circus activity on nitrogen cycle (adapted from another TES resource. Lots of exam questions for application tasks and worksheets included in ppt. Carbon and Nitrogen cycle includes but taught in a slightly different way - to suit new A-level demand.


Complete lesson on Nitrogen and Carbon Cycle. Includes active learning opportunities, past paper questions and also answers. Both cycles covered but taught in slightly different ways. I hope it is useful.
