Storyboard Text

  • Photosynthesis
  • Plants are very impatient part of the carbon cycle. They absorb C02 and produce carbon containing sugars. This process is called photosynthesis.
  • Food Chain
  • When animals feed on green plants, they pass carbon compounds to other animals in the upper levels of their food chains. Animals give off carbon dioxide to the atmosphere during respiration 
  • Respiration 
  • Respiration is when carbohydrates are converted into water and carbon dioxide. During respiration, both animals and plants return the carbon dioxide they inhaled into the atmosphere so the carbon cycle can continue.
  • Decomposition 
  • Decomposers help reclaim carbon from dead organisms and put it back into the carbon. Decomposers break down dead plants, animals, and waste products. This releases carbon dioxide through cellar respiration.  
  • Combustion
  • Combustion puts more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. This creates the imbalance that we are experiencing the extra CO2 enhances the already present greenhouse effect. 
  • The End
  • Now you know more about the Carbon Cycle.
