Carbon Cycle

What do volcanoes, dead cows, and the greenhouse effect have in common? They’re all part of the carbon cycle! In this BrainPOP movie, Tim and Moby teach you about the carbon cycle, a process that’s essential to all life on Earth. You’ll learn how plants and animals work together to circulate carbon through living and non-living systems, and you’ll be able to trace the path of carbon from your mouth to a volcano’s eruption. And after you learn how humans might have thrown the cycle out of whack, you’ll really gain a new appreciation for trees!
