...I wish I could learn more about animals and living things and do something FUN...
A turtle! I read that although they spend a lot of time swimming in water, they are mammals and breathe air, so they use respiration, too. It must have laid eggs somewhere around here. Lets follow her to see where she goes.
Wow! A mother deer and her baby! I learned from my science teacher that every animal uses respiration to stay alive. But...when they die...they become compost. But the good thing is that they keep the carbon cycle flowing through the earth.
In a dream...
Well, she seems to have a family! Aww! There's a fish swimming and splashing around in the lake, too! Let's go scuba diving and explore in the ocean!
I remember that my teacher also told me that in the deep ocean, fish exhale carbon through their gills, and carbon is also stored in nutrients.
I just realized that I am surrounded by dirt! Soil is filled with carbon, it helps decompose organisms easily. When organisms decompose, they turn into fossil fuels! Then, fossils turn into oil, gases, or coal which we people sometimes make. After that, the products are released into the atmosphere. Which means... that carbon is all around us!
Where am I? Oh! I'm in an ant army's tunnels! Did I shrink? Oh, look! there's a plant in here! Plants also absorb carbon through photosynthesis and they grow while carbon is stored in them. Plants also need carbon to respire, so they depend on carbon to survive, like us humans!
Oh! I guess it was just a dream. A Good one, too!
