You should get a notification in Amplify to see what I have written. Also, I have unlock the test again to give you a chance to improve you work. It's obvious too when you are cheating so do your own work and research. Use the simulator or watch you tube videos about the carbon cycle. The more videos you watch the better you will understand the concept. Watch the first half of this video for starters.

  • Lesson 3.2: Total Carbon in an Ecosystem
  • Game Directions
  • After our activities today and from previous lessons, we know that the total carbon in an ecosystem doesn’t change, but it does move from one part of the ecosystem to another. If the amount of carbon in abiotic matter changed, then the amount of carbon in biotic matter must have also changed because the total carbon is shared between the abiotic and biotic parts of the system. In the biodome, we know that the carbon in abiotic matter decreased. Now we know that this means that the carbon in biotic matter must have increased as well. As we just observed in the Sim, this increase in carbon took place in dead matter.
