Storyboard Text

  • Hey look at this ordinary rock on this island.
  • SCIENCE TIME! As you can see it is raining. The rain washes the phosphorus into the sand. Then the tress will absorb it.
  • SCIENCE TIME! When it rains the phosphorus leaves the rock and the trees and plants absorb it
  • After the plants and trees  absorb the Phosphorus, animals eat the plants and absorb phosphorus. 
  • The rock has phosphorus at the beginning of the cycle. In this frame, a sun burnt man on an island sees the rock.
  • Back on land, after the phosphorous has left the rocks it can go into the water.
  • This frame shows a storm occurring. When it rains, the phosphorus comes out of the rock and into the soil/sand, then the plants and tress absorb it. Other living things absorb phosphorus.
  • This is the last step of the Phosphorus cycle. In this step, the animals and plants decompose and phosphorus goes back into the soil
  • In this frame the polar bear is eating the plants on the island and absorbing phosphorus into its body.
  • The sun burnt man explains what happens to the phosphorus when it leaves the rock in a different area. In addition to being absorbed by the plants, phosphorus can go into water that animals will drink.
  • When plants and animals die, their matter is decomposed over time and phoshorus goes back to the soil.
  • This cycle repeats continually and phosphorus will never go away.
