Over the next week, we are learning about deforestation.

 If deforestation of the rainforests continues at its current rate, all rainforests may have disappeared within the next 100 years.

 Create a poster or a leaflet to persuade people to help protect the rainforest.

 Think about:

Why are rainforests being cut down?

Who is doing this?
