Eco-island: Silverleaf Forest
18 August 2008Add to My Folder
Focus: Deforestation/habitats/renewable energy sources
Silverleaf Forest is being chopped down to fuel the furnaces of the factory (see Sludge River) and meet the ever demanding needs of Sky City.
The Buzzsaws are machines that are sawing and chopping down the trees. By destroying the forest habitat and churning up the earth with their tracks, eco-systems are being affected.
- Perhaps it is time a campaign group was set up to highlight the impact of deforestation on the wildlife in the woodlands and the climate as a whole.
Forest resources are being used up at an alarming rate by the residents of Sky City. Soon there will no longer be a forest for the people of the island to enjoy.
- Waste not, want not. The islanders need to be shown less wasteful and damaging ways of using paper and fuel.
Activity 1 – make homemade paper in a variety of styles and colours.
Activity 2 – investigate the features of a deciduous forest and build a large collage representing the woodland.
Activity 3 – Investigate the ecosystem of a deciduous forest and add a range of animals to the woodland collage started in Activity 2.
Activity 4 — Design a pot for a tree seed and plant the tree in a local area.
