The continuing destruction of the world’s rainforests has enormous effects on life. What can you do to help stop the devastation?
Not long ago, 14% of the Earth’s surface was covered with rainforest. Today it is about 6%. Because of clearing trees (deforestation), scientists estimate that timber and cattle farming will destroy the remaining forests within 40 years.
It’s hard to imagine that 137 species of organisms are lost each day. Research some endangered or already extinct plant and animal species such as the jaguar and pygmy marmoset monkey. How will loss of these species and their habitats affect humans? What can be done to stop the destruction of rainforests?
<STRONG>What’s endangered?</STRONG> On a recycled file folder, draw endangered rainforest animals and plants with Crayola® Markers. Leave a small tab to attach each picture to your triarama. Cut them out with Crayola Scissors.
<STRONG> Assemble your triarama</STRONG>. Cut another file folder into a square. Fold in half, point to point, making a triangle. Cut one fold from a point to the center. Lay flat. Decorate two sides and one of the triangles with a rainforest background. Slide the undecorated triangle under the other one. Glue with Crayola School Glue. Air-dry the triarama.
<STRONG>Display endangered flora and fauna</STRONG>. Glue flora and fauna tabs to the triarama. If you like, add labels to show names of endangered or extinct species. Air-dry the glue. Explain your findings and solutions to others.
