HI! I'm Chankoowashtay the Carbon Atom but most people call me Chuck. Today I want to share my story through the carbon cycle.
It may not be noticeable but I am actually inside of this bear named Kody. I'm actually in a form called glucose which is what he uses to get energy through a process called cellular respiration. The sad thing is though is that Kody ended up getting sick and died. He decayed and I was released into the atmosphere.
After the sad death of Kody I came up to the atmosphere and found and hung out with some of my old friends. I also made some new friends. I am now in the form of Carbon Dioxide.
Hey there, I'm Johnson the Hydrogen atom.
HI I"M NASHASHUK THE OXYGEN ATOM!
H-hi I'm Saca-Sacagawea. T-the he-helium at-atom
I was in the atmosphere for awhile with my friends, but I was soon taken in by a tree. This tree took me in using a small opening called stoma on one of its leaves. Trees and plants have many of these on their leaves. The plural version of stoma is stomata.
I am once again not noticeable because I am inside the plant. In this plant I am now in the form of glucose. Which is the plants form of energy it gets through photosynthesis. Photosynthesis is when the plant uses Carbon dioxide and water and makes glucose and oxygen. Plants also need light to do this process.
A lot of years passed and the tree I was in was hit by lightning during a storm. I had no where left to go so I went up to the atmosphere.
