  • Howdy! I'm just out here on a walk and I notice all of these living and non-living things in our world.
  • For example, this tree right here, it takes the carbon out of the air to make its own food! While also releasing oxygen for us animals to breath. This is called photosynthesis.
  • When these living organisms die, they need to be decomposed by decomposers.
  • This process also releases carbon into the air that is stored in the soil. Eventually these dead organisms will turn into fossil fuels like coal and oil.
  • We take out those fossil fuels out of the ground and burn them for our benefit, like fuel for our cars. This process released carbon dioxide into our atmosphere
  • Hi! I'm a tree, one of the many trees in this neighborhood. But there used to be hundreds of trees! But the humans decided to cut my friends down so they can make this neighborhood and town.
  • Now were at the ocean! The carbon from the atmosphere is stored in the plants found on the seafloor. Then carbon is released through the animals in the sea through respiration.
  • Here's something interesting, sea creatures like clams and oysters use the carbon in the ocean to make their own shells!
  • Well that will wrap up the carbon cycle for today, thanks for listening!
