Exploring the Deciduous Forest

By Mrs. Durst`s class

plants,animals, and weather in the forest


There are big, tall plants that block out sunlight in the deciduous forest, although some sunlight manages to get through.Some trees have adapted to the wildfires in the forest, like redwood. Much of them are low growing or tall. They've adapted by self-defense like poison ivy, which can cause inflammation on your skin.Plants are endangered because of tree chopping and treading {and driving} over plants.Although they block out sunlight, tall trees also give animals shade.There are also tiny plants like grasses and shrubs in the deciduous forest.


In the deciduous forest the animals have to adapt to being able to survive in cold weather and have to learn good hunting strategies.Some threatening things to the deciduous forest are poachers hunting for food,people moving on animals territory, and people cutting down tree's.Some ways people can help protect the animal wild life is by stop killing the animals and leaving animals territory alone.


In the summer the climate is cold and wet. In the winter the climate is colder. It is 30 degrees c with the average being 10 degrees c.There are 4 seasons in the forest. There is spring, summer, winter, and autumn.Ice ages destroys the forest that has lead to destruction or animal extinction.Global warming destroys the forest because there is less CO2. There is more heat. Acid rain destroys the forest because of the acid that kills in the rain kills the leaves. You should stop building houses on the forest for the trees.
