How do humans alter habitats?

human impacts

In our science lesson today we had an excellent discussion about the ways in which humans can change habitats. We recognised that sometimes these changes are good; for example when we help built shelters for them or plant extra trees and plants. However, we also discussed how humans often have a negative impact on the environment.

We learnt about deforestation. This happens when lots of trees are chopped down. Keep an eye on this post and hopefully year 4 will tell you how this impacts different animals.

Then we Google’d the word pollution and were disgusted by some of the images we saw.

We have decided to play our part keeping the environment the way it should be by helping the creatures that live in our school grounds by doing a litter pick next week.
