In this visual resource about the carbon cycle, students are presented with an animation and accompanying text that focus on carbon and plants. The text addresses how plants fit into the larger carbon cycle, including how carbon enters and leaves the biosphere, and it explains what students are viewing in the animation. The animation shows false color images on a flat map of the world. When the viewer clicks on the image (or the play button), the animation plays, and color patterns reveal changes in plant growth on land and water over a 3-year period. Movie controls allow students to pause the animation, to replay the animation, or to move backward or forward through the images 1 month at a time. Copyright 2005 Eisenhower National Clearinghouse
