All Things Are Made of Carbon
When carbon mixes with other elements such as oxygen, they create compounds that work within the environment to move alone environmental processes such as carbon dioxide (carbon and oxygen) and the process of photosynthesis
Photosynthesis vs. Cellular Respiration
Photosynthesis:
- requires energy from the sun to produce food
- CO2 is taken in and 02 is given off
- light is needed

Cellular Respiration:
- food is broken down to create energy
- O2 is taken in and CO2 and H2O are given off
- no light needed

We as humans are part of the carbon cycle
We breathe in oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide through cellular respiration
