Why do fire extinguishers have carbon dioxide when fire is made out of carbon dioxide?

Fire is not made out of carbon dioxide. Carbon dioxide is a product of fire. Fire is a chemical reaction between oxygen and some flammable substance. Since most flammable materials contain carbon, most fires will produce carbon dioxide. Carbon dioxide is completely non-flammable and can cut a fire off from its supply of oxygen.

What is the carbon cycle and why is it called a cycle?

The carbon cycle is the cycle in which carbon moves around...well, here's a "simple" description: Humans take in oxygen and change it to carbon dioxide. Burning things and the fire itself, also releases carbon dioxide. It's not just humans; it's also animals like dogs and cats that take in oxygen and give off carbon dioxide. We do it with every breath. So, how come we don't run out of oxygen and have carbon dioxide in its place? Well, plants take in carbon dioxide and give off oxygen. Go basically: Animals breathe out carbon dioxide, burning things give off carbon dioxide, and plants take in carbon dioxide and give off the oxygen that we use and change to carbon dioxide. It is a cycle because it keeps happening and happening and the carbon dioxide "goes around in a circle."
