  2. Conflict in the rainforest - what does each group want?

    The carbon-oxygen cycle consists of a series of events that turn carbon dioxide into oxygen. This is key as we always breathe out carbon dioxide, so do vehicles and factories as it is a waste product of burning fuel. With all this carbon dioxide in the air we will all suffocate and global warming will occur. That is why if you chop down trees or plants this will happen. Scientists believe that the Amazon rainforest alone creates about one quarter of Earth?s oxygen. A rainforest tree may have produced the oxygen that you are breathing right now.

  5. Letter from Japan, I quite like the lessons in my new school, some of them are the same as Scottish school lessons but I do get taught some traditional Japanese arts

    I have made a few friends here, but most of the people in our school don?t talk much English, apart from the stuff they?ve learnt in English class, but that doesn?t really make a very good conversation. My parents are thinking about hiring a Japanese tutor for me and my brother, so we can get on better in school and stuff, since we do live in a Japanese speaking part of Japan. In school, the English speaking kids do get taken out of some classes for some Japanese lessons but my parents still think I would benefit from a private tutor?you know what they?re like.
