A very visual way of appreciating the carbon cycle and a great introduction to climate change. This board game shows carbon atoms cycling around the natural environment. It moves around the 3 main stores (plants, animals and the atmosphere) according the the roll of a dice, but overall stays in balance.
However, when the game is repeated (by skewing the number of atoms that move for one number on the dice) the cycle goes out of balance.
There is a sheet for students to record the movement of the atoms and notes for the teacher as well as Word and pdf versions of the board which can be printed onto A4 card of laminated.
