    Food ,fruits, grass , trees are all found in rain forests and be used .
    Food-can be eaten by animas.
    Fruits-Some types of fruits can grow in rainforests.
    Grass- grass can be in the rainforest to eat by animals.
    Trees- can be very important because if the animal don’t have oxygen the trees will give the oxygen to the animals.

    – hunting for food, bug larva, birds, termites, frog, lizard, snakes, grass hopper and ants larger preys such as deer, boars and fish.

    GOLD
    The effect deforestation have on rain forest tribes are that their main source of living is being destroyed therefore hunting, medicine, wood is all taken away from them making it difficult to survive. We have been in lock down and experienced maybe 10% of this as we still had other sources to live by. But for this tribe all they depend on is the rain forest.

    • Hi Yahya. You are right at times we struggled to gain basics like pasta and toilet roll. However, this was more to do with panic buying than the items being destroyed. Can you imagine if we never had these items again….

      We look forward to receiving your silver work.

    • Good ideas Muhammad, can you expand on them. Where would the medicine come from? How would they find or eat beans? and what are they going to do with fish?

    They might have less oxygen.
    They might break there homes because trees fall down while trees are choped.

  21. Bronze
    When the tribe’s when to the amazon rainforests they made their house out of wood to make wooden houses over the time they were in the amazon rainforests.
    While being in the Amazon rainforests the drank water out of vines, used an arrow to kill turtles and fish to eat; they used the remain of the wood to make the fire. Additionally, they got medicine from trees in case anyone got sick and they ate Babassu for snack.

    I will do it later.
    Gold
    Deforestation has an effect on the rainforests because if they cut down the trees the animals in the Amazon rainforest will be engaged and the humans get their oxygen from trees.
    Deforestation also has an effect on the rain forest tribes because they get food from the tree also they get their medicine.

  22. Bronze:
    1)Hunting-for food.
    2)Vine- for drinking water.
    3)Trees-for collecting medicines.
    4)River-catching fish for lunch.

    Silver:
    I will create a rainforest proof house and label it.

    Gold:
    1)Deforestation affects the people who live in rainforests because when people chop down trees the tribes medicines and fruits grow on trees so they rely on trees.And if all the trees are chopped down the tribes won’t survive because humans need oxegen and trees exhale the carbon dioxide and if people chop them all down where will go oxegen and who will take our cabon dioxide.

    • Well done Aamina, this is correct. Would you like to live in the rain forest like the tribes do? How different would it be to our modern lives?
