Nitrogen Cycle Game – Play Now!
Although 78% of the air we breathe is nitrogen (N) and there is nitrogen tied up in the organic fraction of the soil, plants are unable to use this nitrogen for their growth. A process known as nitrogen fixation – biological and synthetic industrial fixation – must occur for nitrogen in the air to be converted to forms plants can use.
Have your students had a difficult time grasping the concept? It’s required learning, but it doesn’t mean it’s easy! Use this free game to enforce the concepts after a discussion on nitrogen fixation, ammonium, volatilization, nitrate and denitrification.
