Students run clockwise around a track in the gym, pretending they are the blood that carries oxygen through the body. They go to the "mouth" station where they take three breaths and pick up an object that represents oxygen. Students then run to the "heart" station and contract their whole body, pretending to be a heart.

Ecology 5 - Carbon and Oxygen Cycles
High schoolers construct their own diagrams outlining the pathway of carbon and oxygen in our atmosphere. They listen to a lecture on the carbon cycle while drawing an example of the carbon cycle on the board. Students comprehend that CO2 is the main source of carbon, which is used for photosynthesis, and that CO2 is a byproduct of photosynthesis.

The Impact of Climate Change on the Mountain Pine Beetle and Westerns Forests
In the Western Forests there lives a beetle, a mountain pine beetle. Explore the ways in which a once manageable beetle population has grown to unmanageable numbers because of climate change in forest regions. After examining case study documents and a video, the class engages in a discussion on the potential versus actual impact of climate change on forest beetle population.
