Reflection: Co-Teaching Blame it on the Carbon - Section 4: Elaborate


This activity provides many opportunities to make connections to CCSS in math, including:

  • CCSS.Math.Content.6.SP.B.5  Summarize numerical data sets in relation to their context, such as by:
    • 6.SP.B.5.a  Reporting the number of observations.
    • 6.SP.B.5.c  Giving quantitative measures of center (median and/or mean) and variability (interquartile range and/or mean absolute deviation), as well as describing any overall pattern and any striking deviations from the overall pattern with reference to the context in which the data were gathered.
    • 6.SP.B.5.d  Relating the choice of measures of center and variability to the shape of the data distribution and the context in which the data were gathered.

I would like to suggest working with your math teacher to co-teach this lesson, which will allow you to address multiple standards, using an integrated approach.

Blame it on the Carbon

Unit 4: Enivronmental Science
Lesson 9 of 15

Objective: SWBAT identify the parts and processes of the carbon cycle.

Big Idea: As students describe how the carbon cycle contributes to the condition of our environment, they gain a better understanding of the cause and effect of human activities on the Earth's systems.
