Activity 6.2A: Comparing Animals and Flames (50 min)

Students synthesize their learning to compare animals and flames.

Note: There are two options for this activity, 6.2a and 6.2b. In 6.2a, students will trace carbon atoms in flames (based on learning from Systems and Scale) and in animals. In 6.2b, students will develop a summary explanation for animals. We recommend teaching one of the two options based on what units you have previously taught and the type of review that would be most useful for your students.
