Endangered Species

This is a student post written by Savannah, Adrianna, and Nicole.

Endangered animals need to be taken care of as do their habitats. They need their habitats to survive. If they don’t have their home or food, they will not survive. Some people hunt endangered animals like the cheetah. People cut down trees for paper or building materials.

Here are some ways you can help. Try using things that are not made of wood. Try using whiteboards or computers instead of paper. You can use an iPod, DSi, or eReader to read books too. If you have to use paper, then recycle it when you’re done. You can also use both sides of the paper before recycling. This is called reusing. To reduce your garbage, cut down on how much you use each day. We should start replanting the trees that are getting cut down, too.

Here are some of the illustrations the first grade students made on Earth Day to remind us how to take care of the Earth.

Can you tell us if you’ve ever done something to help endangered animals?


Please share some of your endangered animal research with us.

  1. Dear Mr. Middlestadt’s class,

    I agree that endangered species need to be taken care of. For example the cheetah. I hope that they find a way to repopulate them.
