slide10

slide11

This statement is a fact?

-They have thinner and smoother bark than trees in other kinds of rain forests.

slide12

slide14

What is a Rain forest?

-A rain forest is a special kind of forest that grows in warm, wet places. The trees are tall and grow close together. There are three main types of rain forest.

slide15

What are three types of rain forest?

a) Tropical Forests

b) Cloud Forests

c) Temperate Forests

slide16

Give the definition for each type of rain forests.

a) Tropical Forests

-grow near the equator, climate is hot and rain falls nearly every day.

b) Cloud Forests

-cover mountains in tropical regions and are up in the clouds

c) Temperate Forests

-grow farther from the equator

slide17

Why should we worry about the depletion of the rain forests?

-Scientists think that about ten million different species of plants and animals live on Earth. The rain forests are home to nearly two-thirds of these.

slide18

Leaves use the energy of sunlight to join water and carbon dioxide gas from the air to make food. As they do this, what gas do they give off?

-As leaves make food, they give off a gas called oxygen, which most living things need to survive.

slide19

What are some ways that Big Business has damaged the rain forests?

-Business have damaged rain forests through mining, industrial development, and the building of large dams. Tourism has also threatened some of the more popular rain forests.

slide20

Why is soil erosion harmful?

-Soil erosion is harmful because if the trees are cleared away, there are no roots to hold the soil. Soil washes into streams and rivers and chokes them with mud. Aquatic (water) plants and animals that need clear and clean water die.

slide21

What are some new finds that scientists have been discovering in the rain forests?

-Scientists have discovered new medicines, exotic foods, and several different ways to use the plants of the rain forests.

slide22

What can you do to help prevent the rain forests from being completely cleared away?

-I can help prevent rain forests from being completely cleared away by donating to charities that support the rain forests, or by recycling. I could also work to educate the people that are destroying the rain forests through slash and burn farming.

slide23

-It is generally hot.

-There is constant rainfall.
