Sketching Science Concepts for Review

Sachem High School East Advanced Placement Environmental Science students put their creativity to the test as they created detailed diagrams of complex science concepts in preparation for their upcoming midterm exam. 

Working in small groups, the students used water-soluble markers to draw illustrations of various topics they had been studying this year. With guidance from their teacher, John Crisci, the students created visual representations of such topics as carbon and nitrogen cycles, the greenhouse effect, ozone layer, soil profiles and the Earth’s wind belts. 

After the diagrams were complete, the students rotated between the group projects and listened as their peers discussed their charts. Students were also encouraged to replicate each group’s project in their notebooks for further review and future reference.
