Teacher : Alright students, please keep away all your stuffs. Lets have a small
s discussion about what I asked you yesterday. Do any of you now know
a what is the Amazaon?

Ying Yan: Sir, I know. The Amazon rainforest is the world's largest remaining a
asd natural resource. It is a moist and broadleaf forest.

Teacher : Very good! Actually, the Amazon rainforest represents 54% of the total
a rainforests left on earth. It covers an area of 2,5 million square miles, a
a embracing nine South America countries. Can anyone name me the a a
a nine countries?

Emily : I know! I know! Its Brazil, Columbia, Peru, Venezuela, Ecuador.

Rachelle : Wait! Let me have a chance to answer too! And Bolivia, the Guianas a
a Guyana, French Guiana and Suriname.

Teacher : You can also summarize it as two thirds of the South America
avasdadsd continent. Also, if the rainforest was a country, it would ranked 9th in
a size. Besides that, its live force is the Amazon river.

Emily : It is born in the Andean mountains of Peru, flows for more than 4,000
a miles to discharge its waters in the Atlantic ocean near Belem, Brazil.

Ying Yan : And along the way, it is fed by about 1,100 tributaries.

Rachelle : It is also the largest river in the world, while being the 2nd longest
asdf river in the world after the Nile.

Teacher : It seems like you have done some homework. Very well, lets a
sd move on. The river systems and flood plains in Brazil, Peru, Ecuador,
asdf Colombia and Venezuela, whose waters drain into the Solimes and
asdf its tributaries, are called the "Upper Amazon". Is there any other
asdf information that you found interesting while doing your researches?

Ying Yan : Umm, sir? I found out that There are no bridges across the entire
asdf length of the river. Why is that?

Emily : This is because there are very few roads and cities at the Amazon
asdf river side. Most of the time, the crossings can be done by ferries, so
asdf there is no need to build a bridge.

Rachelle : I found something too! The Amazon rainforest is home to 10% of the
asdf known species, 205 of the bird species in the world, over 40,000
asdf different plant species and approximately 2.5 million insect species
asdf in the Amazon rainforest.

Teacher : Thats a lot of numbers you got there. What about its second name?
asdf Any of you know anything about it?

Emily : The Amazon rainforest is also referred to as the Lung of the Planet.

Teacher : Thats correct! The Amazon rainforest produces more than 20% of
asdf the world's oxygen., which is why it is given the name. Are there any
asdf known fruits growing there?

Ying Yan : There are approximately 3000 fruits that grow in the rainforest that
asdf are edible.

Emily : There are also several species that can pose a hazard. Among the asdf
asdf largest predatory creatures are the black caiman, jaguar, cougar, and
asdf anaconda.

Rachelle : In the river, electric eels can produce an electric shock that can stun
asdfdf or kill, while piranha are known to bite and injure humans.

Teacher : What a dangerous place it is! Anyways, are there any people living
asdf there?

Rachelle : In 1500 there were between 6 and 9 million Amazon natives. Today
asdf there are only an estimated 250,000 left. There are approximately
asdf 170 different languages spoken by the Amazon natives.

Teacher : Good! Furthermore, it is believed that there may still be as many as
asdf 50 Amazon native tribes living in the rainforest that have never been
asdf in contact with the rest of the world. One more thing, do you have any
asdf idea about what is so special about the trees in the Amazon?

Ying Yan : I have heard that the trees are so tightly packed that it can take 10
asdf minutes for the rain to reach the ground.

Teacher : Youre right. So for instance, if you were caught in the rain in the asdf
asdf Amazon, you would have about 10 minutes to find your umbrella, isnt
asdf that convenient? Oh! It is time for the next lesson. Thank you class.

Students : Thank you sir.
