Integrated Science – Wednesday: Carbon Dioxide

Integrated Science – Wednesday: Carbon Dioxide

Today our integrated scientists examined  how carbon dioxide and water intersect in our bodies and in our environment by looking at pH and temperature change as related to water, as well as the sources of carbon dioxide in our local area for Illinois. Students examined the process of photosynthesis using spinach, a syringe to remove initial oxygen, different colored paper, and light. They also created an ecosystem board game that emphasized the critical role water plays in the planet’s hydrologic cycle.
