Students play the role of nitrogen atoms traveling through the living and nonliving parts of the nitrogen cycle to gain understanding of the varied pathways through the cycle and the relevance of nitrogen to living things. By documenting their journey, students record how nitrogen gets from one place to another in the cycle.
Classroom activity kit includes Traveling Nitrogen activity description, a Student Passport Worksheet (for making additional copies as needed), 10 dice, dice code and reservoir station sign instructions, 11 color laminated nitrogen station signs, stamp template instructions and 11 pages of color station stamps for gluing to Student Passports. This kit works for a class of 30 students. Stamp templates can be copied if additional stamps are needed.
