Storyboard Text

  • Carbon Dioxide is a gas found in the atmosphere.
  • Photosynthesis is the process when plants use carbon dioxide, water, and sunlight to create oxygen and glucose.
  • Plants take in the Carbon Dioxide  from the atmosphere and use it for photosynthesis.
  • Cellular Respiration is the process when animals use oxygen and glucose to create carbon dioxide, water, and ATP. This energy is for cells to use in the organism.
  • Animals take in oxygen from plants and use it for cellular respiration.
  • Decomposers thrive off of the nutrients of dead plants and animals. When plants and animals die, carbon is relased back into the atmosphere.
  • When plants die, decomposers like fungi break down the plants, therefore releasing carbon dioxide.
  • When humans burn these fossil fuels in factories or while driving cars, most of the carbon quickly enters the atmosphere as carbon dioxide.
  • When plants die, they are also buried and may turn into fossil fuels made of carbon, such as coal.
  • Carbon dioxide enters plants and is released back into the atmosphere in many different ways. The cycle just keeps REPEATING!
