How Can Clear of Tress Destroy a Community?

Fifth graders brainstorm the relationship between trees and humans to determine how humans benefit from trees and how they benefit from us. They discuss oxygen/carbon dioxide exchange, soil stablization, animal habitat, shade, medicine from the rainforest, etc. Students then make and distribute invitations for an open house where they describe community goals to protect environment.

Lesson Planet has given me great ideas to use in Phonics and Math this year. My students comprehension skills have improved so much because of the great lessons I have found!
