Storyboard Text

  • Carboniferous Period (380 to 286 Million Years ago), a time before the age of dinosaurs, the land was filled with swamps filled with plants and organisms.
  • When the organisms died, they sank to the bottom of the ocean and after millions of years of being covered up by sediments...
  • They decomposed into FOSSIL FUELS. Different types of fossil fuels form depending on the combination of organic matter, temperature, time, and pressure condition while decomposing.
  • FOSSIL FUELS
  • The first type of fossil fuel is COAL. Coal is formed from plants and trees by hardening through pressure and heat
  • COAL
  • Second, the OIL. It is formed from small organisms like small insects, algae, and zooplanktons where pressure cause complex organic matter to decompose
  • OIL
  • Last fossil fuel type is the NATURAL GAS. It has the same process with oil, but it undergoes with more heat and pressure causing it to further decompose, turning it into a gaseous form.
  • NATURAL GAS
