Creative Writing task

 

Write a persuasive letter using the WAGOLL to support you. You need to think about the many habitats of animals that are being destroyed by humans. There are many animals that are endangered and may become extinct their habitats continue to be destroyed!

 

The WAGOLL shows a letter persuading people not to destroy the rainforest. You can write about the same or pick another type of habitat such as the oceans, forests or deserts.

If you decide to write about the rainforest here is a link to the book The Great Kapok tree which we have read in school. It shows all the animals opinions about humans destroying the rainforest.

Dear reader,

There are many arguments for and against destroying the rainforest. Many people believe that the rainforest should be destroyed so that people can live there. However, others believe that the rainforest shouldn’t be destroyed because there are many tropical animals that depend on it and the living things in the rainforests are useful.

 

I think that the rainforest should not be destroyed because it produces oxygen that help us live. Also, it is the habitat of many unique and wonderful animals that will become extinct if we destroy the rainforest.  In my opinion destroying the rainforest would be catastrophic. Without the rainforest there will be nothing to hold the soil in place and the rainforest will turn to a desert. If you are thinking of destroying this environment you will live in an ugly world without any trees, plants and helpless animals. What do you think about this?

 

From,

Mowgli
