High School (SCI) Life Science Standards
[LS2] Ecosystems: Interactions, Energy, and Dynamics
SCI-HS.LS2.05 Develop a model to illustrate the role of photosynthesis and cellular respiration in the cycling of carbon among the biosphere, atmosphere, hydrosphere, and geosphere.
Clarification Statement: Examples of models could include simulations and mathematical models. Disciplinary Core Ideas LS2.B: Cycles of Matter and Energy Transfer in
-Photosynthesis and cellular respiration are
important components of the carbon cycle, in
which carbon is exchanged among the
biosphere, atmosphere, oceans, and
geosphere through chemical, physical,
geological, and biological processes
