Carbon Cycle

QuestionAnswer
How does carbon move from the atmosphere to plants? In the atmosphere, carbon is attached to oxygen in a gas called carbon dioxide (CO2). With the help of the Sun, through the process of photosynthesis, carbon dioxide is pulled from the air to make plant food from carbon.
How does carbon move from plants to animals? Through food chains, the carbon that is in plants moves to the animals that eat them. Animals that eat other animals get the carbon from their food too.
How does carbon move from plants and animals to the ground? When plants and animals die, their bodies, wood and leaves decay bringing the carbon into the ground. Some becomes buried miles underground and will become fossil fuels in millions and millions of years.
How does carbon move from living things to the atmosphere? Each time you exhale, you are releasing carbon dioxide gas (CO2) into the atmosphere. Animals and plants get rid of carbon dioxide gas through a process called respiration.
How does carbon move from fossil fuels to the atmosphere when fuels are burned? When humans burn fossil fuels to power factories, power plants, cars and trucks, most of the carbon quickly enters the atmosphere as carbon dioxide gas.Some are released into seawater.
How does carbon moves from the atmosphere to the oceans? The oceans, and other bodies of water, soak up some carbon from the atmosphere.
