What is Global Warming and
why is it happening?
Global warming is an increase of the average
temperature of Earths surface. It is happening
because the burning of fossil fuels and coal
cause greenhouse gases to escape into most of
the warming. The fossil fuels names are: oil,
coal, and natural gas. Now you might be
wondering what are the symptoms of global
warming? Well ice caps melting, getting
warmer, animals dying, and floods.
More about Global warming
and what to do about it!
These are the names of the Green house gases
Carbon dioxide, Water vapor, methane, and nitrous
oxide these can also effect the earth!! Now the
moment I have been waiting for! What can we do
about Global Warming? Well we can walk, ride a bike,
or take a bus and not waste electricity or you can
reduce, reuse, and RECYCLE!!!! Or planting a tree in
your yard or neighbor hood! Some other facts about
Global Warming are: Sometimes the temperature can
change in a way that helps us! And the Greenhouse
gases can make it appropriate to live on!
Our Biome is Temperate Broadleaf
Deciduous Forests !
This biome is located Eastern half of the USA, Canada,
Europe, Parts of Russia, China, and Japan! A world map of
this biome can be found at worldbiomes.com!
The average yearly rain fall of my biome is: 30-60 inches of
rain a year that is a lot! And the average temperature is
about 50 degrees F. Other interesting or unique facts about
this biome are: Many, Many plants and animals live here.
Also many of these forests are here in Missouri!! Maybe is
you go hiking with your family and go to a forest look around
and see if you can see any unique plants!
Plants that are common in our
Some plants that are common in our biome are: Sweet gum trees,
Oak trees, Moss, and Ferns. All of these trees and plants adapt to
where they live! Like the trees adapt by having thick bark so that
animals can not scratch through the bark and kill the trees but
can still live on the branches!! And the smaller plants like moss
adapt to the forest because the temperature is just right for that
plant. Pictures of plants can be found at: wikipedia.com, or
Animals that are common to my
Some animal that you would find if you went to my biome
would be: Raccoon, Gray squirrel, and the Aspic Viper!!!
These animals have to adapt to this forest by adapting to
cold winters and hot summers! Leaves fall off trees in the
fall witch gives the tree animals less to hide and they must
find a way to stay warm that is why they do not shed in the
winter. And have thick fur. This goes for the Gray squirrel
and the Raccoon. The Aspic Viper has to find somewhere to
stay in the ground to keep cool in the summer.
If there was a rise in temperature
what would happen to our biome?
We were just wondering what would happen to our biome if the
temperature rose what would happen to all the animals and
plants? Well the ice caps would melt and that would be a big
deal because there would be floods. And then animals would die
because the animals that eat the animals that died would go
hungry and also die and then it would go on and on like that. So
everyone you need to know that if you do not take care of the
Earth then our whole biome be destroyed and many other
We could not do this power point with
out these helpful websites!
We need to recycle and
save the forests!
