Journey of a Carbon Atom
. In this essay you will use your imagination and write an 750-1000 word creative story about a carbon atoms journey through time, beginning in prehistoric times and ending in the present. Although this journey will be fantastical, your descriptions and processes should be fact based and referenced. For this essay please:
Describe the form carbon takes through 5-10 transformations.
One of your transformations should include time spent bound up as an essential component of a fossil fuel, and
One should include the form carbon takes in an oil byproduct today, and
One should include the process of photosynthesis and respiration.
I am looking for a demonstration of an understanding of the: carbon cycle, geological time, photosynthesis, and the use of fossil fuels as a resource.
