1 You are a carbon dioxide molecule in the atmosphere. You see a plant. Do you… Enter the plant Stay outside the plant

2 Light Dependent Reactions When you enter the plant, you see light energy. Light energy is used to make ATP in light dependent reactions. The ATP is used to energize light independent reactions Move On

3 Game Over You have now caused the demise of polar bears. Go Back

4 Light Independent Reactions You enter the chloroplast. Do you: Enter the light independent reaction Do nothing

5 System Error You cannot do nothing. It is unproductive. Go Back

6 Enter the Light Independent Reaction ATP provides the energy needed for this reaction. You see a 5-carbon sugar. It menacingly looks at you. Do you: Join with it Join with it Run away

7 Joining the 5-carbon sugar You quickly make friends with the macromolecule and are now stored as chemical energy. It is night time and you hear an herbivore. Do you: Remain as stored energy Expend energy for cellular respiration

8 Running away from 5-carbon sugar You are caught

9 You are Eaten! The animal eats the plant you are stored in. Enzymes are used to breakdown glucose (you) and oxygen. Do you: Continue to be broken down See if the animal spits you out

10 Plant Cellular Respiration-Glycolysis Within the plant glucose (you) move across the cell’s membrane. Glycolysis begins to break you down into pyruvate. Your breakdown also creates the molecules of ATP and NADH. Continue

11 Animal Cellular Respiration You are digested and glucose (you) moves across the cell’s membrane. Glycolysis begins to break you down into pyruvate. Your breakdown also creates the molecules of ATP and NADH. Continue

12 Game Over You are now a lump of chewed up plant, lying on the ground. Go Back

13 The Krebs Cycle As a 3-carbon pyruvate, you are broken down and produce more ATP and NADH. Do you: Biosynthesize Watch a carbon leave and carbon dioxide

14 Krebs Cycle Continued You witness one of the carbon atoms break down and then biosynthesize into carbon dioxide. Do you: Biosynthesize Watch a carbon leave and carbon dioxide

15 Krebs Cycle Continued You are the final carbon remaining in pyruvate. Do you: Biosynthesize Leave as carbon dioxide

16 Game Over You add carbon into the atmosphere. Algae grows out of control now. Go Back

17 Biosynthesis You leave behind the Krebs Cycle. You now may be synthesized into: Lipids Amino Acids

18 Lipids After you leave the Krebs Cycle, you are biosynthesized into a lipid. Do you: Stay stored Wait till the animal starts to move

19 Staying Stored-Game Over As a carbon atom in a lipid, you are stored for a long time. Go Back

20 Animal Starts to Move You feel the animal start to move. You hear a loud noise. Suddenly, you feel warm. Carry on wayward carbonCarry on wayward carbon.

21 Eaten…Again! You have been eaten again! You are broken down into pyruvate. Eventually you are synthesized into an amino acid. Go Ahead

22 Amino Acid You are now biosynthesized into an amino acid, the building block of protein. You have now gone from carbon dioxide in the air to a protein atom. Congratulations, you have traced carbon and energy! The End!
