|
Ask a Question

Synopsis
  • This engaging video discusses the problem of maintaining both farms and forests. 
  • The video explains how forests can be beneficial to farmlands, instead of being seen as an obstacle. 
Teaching Tips

Positives

  • The video incorporates a variety of images, text, and music to engage students and enhance their understanding.
