The world-wide significance of rain forests being destroyed is that it is ruining the environment. The more trees we cut down, the more species we are killing. There are thousands of plants and animals that we never discovered because they became extinct. If we hadn’t destroyed their habitat we could have not only discovered them, but learned so much about them.
This is important to me because I really enjoy being outside, but much of it is being destroyed. Also, I really like animals, but their homes and habitats are disappearing. One thing being done to stop the destruction of rainforests is that forest preserves are being established. In these areas the trees and other species are protected.
The media I used to create my hexagon was markers, pencils, colored pencils, and tissue paper. I used marker for the letters and tree trunk. I used red, orange, and yellow marker for the flames of the trees being burnt down. I used the pencil to make it look like there was smoke coming off of my hexagon. The colored pencils were used for the trees being cut down in the background. For the one tree that was still alive in my picture, I crumpled green tissue paper and glued it on to the tree to make it look leafy and bright. To symbolize the issue I drew many trees being burned and cut down with only one left standing. This represented that the majority of rainforests are being destroyed.
