Instructions for using this template. Remember this is Jeopardy, so where I have written “Answer” this is the prompt the students will see, and where I have “Question” should be the student’s response. To enter your questions and answers, click once on the text on the slide, then highlight and just type over what’s there to replace it. If you hit Delete or Backspace, it sometimes makes the text box disappear. When clicking on the slide to move to the next appropriate slide, be sure you see the hand, not the arrow. (If you put your cursor over a text box, it will be an arrow and WILL NOT take you to the right location.)

Choose a category. You will be given the answer. You must give the correct question. Click to begin.

The cycles discussed in class, plus the phosphorus cycle are all part of the ___________ ________.

What is the biogeochemical cycle?

Cycle shown in this picture.

What is the carbon cycle?

Cycle shown in this picture.

What is the nitrogen cycle?

Cycle shown in this picture.

What is the water cycle?

In order for a biogeochemical cycle to function properly a. There must be a perfect balance of energy and matter b. Matter must be recycled continually. c. The amount of energy must exceed the amount of matter in the system. d. The amount of matter must exceed the amount of energy in the system.

What is b. matter must be recycled continually.

Where large amounts of Nitrogen (N 2 ) are located.

What is the atmosphere?

Nitrogen (N 2 ) can be used in any form by plants and animals without being fixed. True or False

False It must be fixed first.

Name the three ways that nitrogen may be fixed?

Lightening Industrial Biological

Why is nitrogen essential to life?

It is essential to life because it is found in amino acids, nucleic acids, and ATP.

A Match the terms to the cycle letters. 1. Atmosphere 2. Nitrogen Fixation 3. Nitrogen-fixing Bacteria 4. Ammonification 5. Denitrification

A. Atmosphere B. Nitrogen Fixation D. Nitrogen-fixing Bacteria G. Nitrification K. Denitrification

Snow, sleet, and rain are examples of _______.

What is precipitation?

When water is lost from leaves what is it called?

What is transpiration?

A water saturated zone of soil and rock is called a(n)

What is an aquifer?

The water cycle is also know as the ______ cycle.

What is hydrological cycle?

Match the terms to the cycle letters. 1.Precipitation over land 2.Precipitation over ocean 3.Transpiration 4.Seepage from ground 5.Runoff from surface 6.Evaporation from ocean

Match the terms to the cycle letters. 1.Evaporation from ocean F 2.Precipitation over land A 3.Precipitation over ocean B 4.Transpiration C 5.Seepage from ground D 6.Runoff from surface E

What are macro and micro nutrients?

Macronutrients used in large quantities ex. Carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, and phosphorus. Micronutrients used in small quantities, ex. Iodine, iron, zinc, others.

During this process carbon is released back into the environment as CO 2. Hint: You are adding CO 2 to the classroom right now.

What is respiration?

During this process plants take in CO 2 and release O 2 while making sugar.

What is photsynthesis?

Give three examples of how people are adding more carbon to the environment?

Cars, industrial plants, making electricity, and many others.

Match the terms to the cycle letters. 1.Photosynthesis 2.Atmosphere 3.Respiration in plants 4.Decay 5.Detrius Feeders

Match the terms to the cycle letters. 1.Photosynthesis B 2.Atmosphere A 3.Respiration in plants D 4.Decay H 5.Detritus feeders I

Which of the following gases plays a large role in the greenhouse effect and possible global warming? nitrogen carbon carbon dioxide oxygen

Carbon

Why is it difficult to integrate nitrogen gas from the atmosphere into the nitrogen cycle of the biosphere? A. Nitrogen is not very abundant in the atmosphere. B. Few organisms can directly utilize atmospheric nitrogen gas. C. Most plants do not require organic nitrogen compounds for survival. D. Oceans quickly absorb nitrogen gas. E. Living organisms quickly absorb nitrogen gas.

Living organisms quickly absorb nitrogen gas.

Which of the following is known as the sedimentary cycle because its reservoir is sedimentary rock? A) carbon cycle B) hydrologic cycle C) nitrogen cycle D) phosphorous cycle

Phosphorus Cycle

What human activity has added the most carbon to the atmosphere? A. burning fossil fuels B. mining fossil fuels C. cutting down the rain forests D. increasing soil erosion

A. burning fossil fuels

Bacteria drive the ___ cycle. carbon oxygen Energy hydrologic Nitrogen

Nitrogen

This elements symbol is P and it is also a very important cycle.

What is phosphorus?

Phosphorus is found in ______ and _______.

Rocks and Soil Unlike nitrogen and carbon it is not found as a gas

The _____ is the primary producer in the phosphorus cycle. The phosphate is concentrated in plant tissues, and then the plant is consumed by an animal.

Plant

What is different about the phosphorus cycle as compared to the water, carbon, and nitrogen cycle?

The atmosphere is not involved in the cycle.

In order to obtain phosphorus it must be ______.

Mined

Make your wager

Plants known as _______ are key players in fixing nitrogen.

What are Legumes?
