I Speak for the Trees

Drawing inspiration from The Lorax by Dr. Seuss, these ecosystems lessons explore the causes and effects of deforestation, starting by thinking about the consequences of the actions of the careless 'Once-ler' in the book.
Through the included slides, detailed plans and differentiated activities, your class will go on to learn all about how and why areas of forest are logged or cleared completely, as well as how surrounding, connected ecosystems are negatively affected.
It's not all doom and gloom, though! Having learned about the harmful effects of deforestation, teach your children all about the past achievements and ongoing work of environmental campaigners and groups – and challenge them to consider ways in which they, and their school community, can help protect forests.
