In this lesson students will explore the effects of deforestation. Students will observe and answer posed questions as the teacher and class discuss and point out observations in images shown below. As questions are posed, students may be directed to turn and talk to discuss their answers with a partner.
What changes do you see as you look at the first picture and the second picture?
What might happen to a forest when all the trees have been cut down?
What do you think the birds are doing? What about other animals who live in the forest?

A clever selection of images. I can picture the birds with no place to land.
I really like how you have the students compare the two photos of the forest. I also think your featured image does a good job of cluing the reader into what your post is about!
