This week, we are going to look at what happens when rainforests disappear. Look at the lesson presentation and watch the video below.
Then choose an activity to do.
Use the effects of deforestation sheet and sort out the positive and negative effects of deforestation in order of importance.
Look through the debate cards and decide which are for and against deforestation. Choose one character to be and write / record a short speech explaining your point of view. There is also a purple mash sheet you could choose to use instead.
In class, we are going to run this as a debate so trying to explain your point of view out loud to someone is a good way to tackle this. If possible, get them to argue the opposite point of view so you can turn it into a proper debate.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
