We had the choice to write about biodiversity for homework – and these people wrote these acrostic poems
L iving things
A mazing colours
N ature is what we all need
T rees help us live
S ave our environment!
P lants are taking over.
L ong vines everywhere.
A rt of nature.
N ature spreading wildlife –
T aking over our land.
E very place is a home to someone or something.
C old regions like Antarctica shelter penguins and seals.
O pen savannahs allow lions to chase their prey freely.
S ome creatures live in the water – like fish and whales.
Y ou might even have something unexpected in your backyard!
S ometimes a habitat is right for one, but not for another.
T earing down ecosystems results in the extinction of many species.
E xtinction of one species may result in the extinction of many.
M any don’t realise the importance of ecosystems.
S ometimes ecosystems are home to thousands, even millions of different species.
T here are only 3000 tigers alive.
I nstinctively trying to survive.
G reat, magnificent beasts lying their heads to rest.
E very day they do their best.
R oaring loud they scream and shout
S oon we’ll see none plodding about.
By Justin – this poem is to warn people about the dangerously low numbers of tigers, and if we don’t do something about it tigers will become extinct.
