Our plan is… • Too have a water tower close to Crowes nest farm and run pipes to several lakes and if they run low on water they can get water from the water tower • We also have the plan of having a greenhouse so the animals that eat plants don’t run out of water.
The problem is… Drought • a drought is longed period of time with out water which Is caused by global warming. • There are five stages of drought and they are abnormally dry, moderate drought , severe drought, extreme drought, and exceptional drought and right now Texas is in severe drought and we’re about to move to stage 4.
What is a producer and consumer? • A producer is a plant because they can make their own food. • A consumer is a animal because it can’t make it’s own food
