The world has changed a great deal from once it was created. About eighty percent of the original forest land has either been cleared or obliterated due to human activity. This action has caused near one million animal species to be on the bubble for possible extinction. Almost ninety percent of the foods we eat come from just thirty different plant species. Human primary use six primary animals for nutrition (cows, pigs, chickens, turkeys, sheep, and fish). Although fish is a much larger category that should be explored. We have so much to learn that we have yet to explore. We have only tapped one percent of the world’s rainforest for medicinal human use. About a dozen commonly used medicines were discovered in the tropical rainforest. Jungles across the world are where most of these walks of life will be forced to intermingle with one another. Cool thing about jungles, they let a lot more light in then do rainforest areas. Due to this plants grow thick and provide a great food source for a wide variety of animals. More than half of the world’s population of animals and plants live in a jungle. Most jungles are found near the equator.
We will explore the anatomy and structures of these unique creatures. We will also present the basic concepts that build us to evolve to plant and animal species. We will look at their habitat and discover new names for packs of animals and flora regions. Students will learn how to determine the ecosystem that a species belongs to as well as the water and nutrition requirements for various plants and animals. We will also look at the most fundamental differences between living and nonliving. We find a wide variety of creatures featured here including: hydra, protozoan, monerans, and we introduce energy flows through ecosystems.
