Trees | Educational Video For Kids

[Music] [Applause] [Music] hello do you know who i am i am the earth yes that’s right the planet earth and i would like to talk to you about trees as they are very important both for you and me and all living things do you know how many trees there are on my surface almost three trillion yep i said trillion it is difficult to imagine such a large number and it sounds like so many but the truth is we need even more because they are essential for our environment to remain healthy as well as for you and me every year 15 billion trees are cut down [Music] it’s crazy when simply looking at a tree we only observe a part of a complex and fascinating living thing underground you can find the roots and it is because of them that the tree sticks to the ground while at the same time they suck up the water and minerals found in the soil allowing it to grow these roots are also like hands grabbing hold of the earth avoiding it from being eroded by the wind and water the water and all the nutrients it receives from its roots extend throughout the tree through the inner part of the trunk a true column for the treetop this is where we find the tree’s branches which grow outwards in a similar fashion to the roots underground here is where the leaves sprout out a fundamental element in all trees as it is because of them that photosynthesis takes place so they can feed what does photosynthesis mean well it’s a fascinating chemical process the water enriched with minerals reaches the leaves and then with the help of the sunlight and the chlorophyll which is also responsible for the green color they receive is mixed with carbon dioxide absorbed from the air through the leaves photosynthesis is essential for trees but also is really important for all living things living close by because it traps carbon dioxide or co2 which is one of the causes of the greenhouse effect that is making the temperatures rise all over the planet meaning me and that’s why i’m so hot during this process the tree also expels oxygen an essential part of the air we breathe and there are many more benefits we can gain from trees they’re like tiny living planets offering food and shelter to a multitude of different animals human beings get wood and fruit from trees they help soften the wind strength and rain as well as reduce air contamination filtering it through the leaves and branches and i am sure you have found relief under the shade of a tree on a very hot sunny day well they do a similar thing to me the forest are one of the best means i have to regulate the climate thanks to their shade and ability to avoid water evaporation as you can see there are many good reasons to look after trees and better yet to plant them and help them grow strong and healthy i suggest a very exciting idea encourage your parents to grow trees for as you know children can make a world of difference [Music] [Applause] [Music]
