Title: Biogeochemical Cycles: the Carbon & Nitrogen Cycles
Description: This lesson covers the carbon cycle and nitrogen cycle, as these elements cycle through the environment between atmosphere (air), biosphere (living organisms), lithosphere (earth’s surface and crust) and hydrosphere (water) undergoing changes in form as they move throughout their storage pools. Each process will be described so that students will understand exactly how carbon and nitrogen move throughout the cycle and change form. The importance of these elements to organic compounds (life) is stressed as well as human induced changes (global warming, carbon emissions, and nitrogen fertilizer) and the effects of an imbalanced cycle.  
Key Words: biosphere, carbon, carbon cycle, chemical change, global warming, hydrosphere, lithosphere, nitrogen, nitrogen cycle, organic matter

The PEER Program is composed of three grants entitled "GK-12 Fellows Integrate Science/Math in Rural Middle Schools", "Integrating Environmental Health Science in Rural Schools," and a Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA) entitled "Science Promotion in Rural Middle Schools".

Major funding for the PEER Program is provided by John Deere,
National Science Foundation, the
National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences
and the Office of Research Infrastructure Programs (ORIP) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
