Our The Nitrogen Cycle lesson plan introduces students to one of the most important of the Earth’s cycles. During this lesson, students are asked to use their creativity to create a poster depicting the nitrogen cycle, including the nitrogen, plants, animals, decomposers, representations of bacteria, nitrites, nitrates, and more; they must also include text to help explain the various steps of the nitrogen cycle. Students are also asked to match the given information about the nitrogen cycle to the correct step in order to demonstrate their understanding of the lesson material.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define the Nitrogen Cycle and identify and list the steps of the Nitrogen Cycle.
