Today we continued exploring the cycles of matter in ecosystems. Yesterday we discussed the water cycle (evaporation from sun's energy, condensation into clouds, and then precipitation to complete the cycle). Today our focus was on carbon and oxygen cycling in ecosystems. Producers, consumers, and decomposers all use carbon and oxygen in their life processes (and in building their bodies!). Tomorrow we will explore how nitrogen is recycled in ecosystems. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you will need to check out a book to complete your notes (water cycle on p. 60 in the notebook; carbon/oxygen cycles on p. 61). Remember your NOTEBOOK CONFERENCE SHEET is due Friday... take time to show your work!

Most science pictures I post are found from assorted Facebook science pages... too numerous to cite specifically and downloaded for "just the right time"... I am sorry for the poor citation example I am setting.
