Hello 6th graders,
This lesson deals with the world problems of deforestation along with explaining how knowledge of the past helps people understand the problems of the present. As you read the lesson, try to imagine some issues/problems that we might face in the near future. How might decisions made today by leaders, lawmakers, and everyday people effect some of the issues you named?
Remember that just as people today are linked with the past, they are also linked with the future!
