Please rate and comment. This is a powerpoint and worksheet I made for teaching the limestone cycle. It uses animations to show the reactions including word and symbol equations. It ends with the pupils using computers to research the uses of limestone, quicklime, slaked lime and lime water.

Thank you. A great resource, I particularly like the animations of the atoms for each reaction and I know this will help my year 9s grasp it!
