Earth Day is approaching, and if you need Earth Day activities, check out this Amazon Rainforest Animals word search puzzle featuring 15 animals that call the Amazon home.
This Amazon word search will be a good way to keep early finishers busy, or you could use it as a way to open discussion about deforestation.
"What will happen to these animals if the Amazon rainforest is cut down?"
The Amazon rainforest is continuing to be deforested for several reasons such as clearing the land to raise cattle, to grow crops (mostly to feed cattle), logging, and urban sprawl.
Who knows how many world-changing medicines have been lost forever - before they were ever found - because of deforestation.
Let's get your students thinking about the impacts of deforestation, and not only on the people of the country where it is occurring, but on all of us on planet Earth.
Can we afford to lose the "carbon sinks" like the world's great forests?
