Our Only Earth
Rainforests at Risk
Both humanity and Mother Earth have suffered greatly from human insensitivity. Not only are we rapidly depleting the planet’s resources and polluting its air, land and water, we also waste our financial resources on destructive expenditures.
Now you can challenge your students with the complexities of energy needs, supplies and policies. As part of the Our Only Earth series for Years 7–10, this revised Australian edition of Our Only Earth: Rainforests at Risk informs students about the problems associated with the global effects of the loss of tropical rainforests now and in the future, then empowers them to take action.
Sustainability – both social and environmental – is the overarching theme of all seven books in the Our Only Earth series. Through fact cards, activities and journals designed to get students thinking about social and environmental sustainability, each book based on the integrated Our Only Earth framework explores real-life geographical issues and suggests possible solutions, culminating in a summit at which students create action plans and seek ways in which to alleviate global problems.As of 2014, the series has been updated to show correlations to the Australian Curriculum, both specifically within the subject of geography and generally across all learning areas.
Other titles in the Our Only Earth series include: Energy Crisis, Troubled Skies, Global Poverty, World at War, Endangered Species and Ocean Pollution.
