Carbon atom short story Create a short creative story that follows a carbon atom through the different parts of the carbon cycle. Give your carbon atom a name. Start him or her off in the atmosphere and then describe where he or she is going and how he or she is getting there. Have your carbon atom pass through at least (means you can do more) two living things and one nonliving thing. You can make it as complex or simple as you choose and you can be as creative as you want. Will Bob the atom pass through Kate the cow or even you? It’s your choice. Just take him or her through the carbon cycle. It should be at least ½ a page written, you do not have to type it unless you want to.
