We have been learning a lot about tropical rainforests. We are getting ready to give tours of our rainforest classroom to share what we have learned and raise money to protect rainforests. So, we want to explain why we think it is important to try to save the world’s rainforests.
“If the rainforests disappeared we wouldn’t have a lot of oxygen because lots of air comes from the rainforest. Some medicine comes from the rainforest.”
“If rainforests disappeared valuable medicines, food, and other things will be lost in the world forever. Many wonderful plants and animals would also disappear forever.”
“If the rainforests disappeared then all of the interesting plants and animals will lose their habitats and die. Also, we would not have lots of fruits and oxygen.”
“The rainforest helps the earth because it gives out lots of oxygen. For example, leaves take in carbon dioxide and release oxygen.”
“The rainforest is important to the earth beacause the leaves on the trees help us get the oxygen in us to live. Also, it helps get rid of carbon dioxide.”
“Rainforests help the earth because when so much carbon dioxide is in the air some plants in the rainforest suck in the carbon dioxide so the earth won’t get so hot. If the earth gets too hot a lot of plants and animals will die.”
