Death of the Rainforest
When a tree falls or small areas of the rainforest are cleared for native farms, new plants spring up. The rainforest continues to grow.
If a lot of land is cleared for cattle ranches or large farms, the rainforest dies.
Many things happen in the jungle when the rainforest dies: 1. Native kids might lose their homes. They are sad. 2. The rich soil washes away. Rivers fill with mud. The soil becomes dry, cracked, and brown. 3. Plants and animals die. Once one kind of plant or animal dies in the rainforest, others that depend on it die, also.
Pretend you are a kid who lives in the rainforest. What else happens to your jungle when the rainforest dies?
