The Wetlands

Take a look Click to look at more

A land developer decides to build homes near a wetland. When the people move in, they complain because they want a park where their children can play, not a marshy, wet ground. They fill in the wetlands and build a park instead, but problems begin when it rains.

With nowhere for the water to go, the people find a flood at their doors, and when the water subsides; a boggy, smelly park.

The people start to realize that wetlands are natural waterways important for drainage and they provide homes for the animals that live there.

They regret what they have done and set about rectifying it.

This story teaches children that we should protect and care for the natural world that we are a part of.
