Teaching Tips Teaching Tips Animation would have to complement existing curriculum materials as none are provided on website. Some parts are well explained for the average person.

The oceans store large amounts of carbon, and so do plants, soil, and deposits of coal, oil, and natural gas deep underground. High School Performance Expectations: Carbon can be found as a gas, and in solid and liquid forms, but the total amount of carbon on earth always remains the same.

We ask you to seek prior approval to use images animatioj the VRO feedback form. Jump to main content.

Check out this video to learn more about the carbon cycle and how people are changing its natural balance. Whenever we burn fossil fuels such as coal, oil, and natural gas—whether it's to drive our cars, use electricity, or make products—we are producing carbon dioxide.

Movement of matter between reservoirs is driven by Earth's internal and external sources of energy. Click on the animation of the carbon cycle xnimation start.

Increasing organic matter in soil increases the amount of carbon in soil, and wide range of soil health benefits result. The carbon cycle video is an accurate account of current knowledge regarding changes in the carbon cycle due to anthropogenic activities and does it in a simple way, with analogies, that kids can understand without going carbkn quantitative data.

It would be especially useful for middle school. The graphics, text, and narration included in the video work well together to lead to comprehension of a complex topic. Middle School see details. By increasing the amount of carbon stored in the soil, we can significantly offset the amount of CO 2 in the atmosphere and also improve the health of our soil. This animation depicts the carbon cycle in a fashion that is suited for younger audiences.
