Inquiry Topic: Pests

In the beginning of our topic about pests, my class had to do a K.W.L chart of what we knew about the subject. Our topic was unique and different to the other schools in the Manaiakalani Cluster. I didn't know much when I first studied Pests until my research increased my knowlege. Here is my evidence of my prior knowledge.

Then after days of research, we started writing an explanation of what we knew about pests and also facts about them too. Here was my completed task.

Why Are Pests So Environmentally Unfriendly?

Pests are animals, creatures and insects that create destruction towards the environment and towards people. They mostly create chaos in people’s houses, gardens, crops and even chew and swallow our food! This is called contamination which means that they poison our food with their diseases.

Pests are often unwanted because they transfer diseases and cause people to be ill. When pests unite, they have to be exterminated with pesticide. This is called an infestation. When they unify, they could possibly cause twice as much damage as they do alone.

Mosquitoes slurp on people's blood and cause them to have a fever or itching. This could lead them to have malaria, which makes humans vomit and give people headaches. In serious cases, it can cause your skin to turn yellow, give people seizures or even death.

People should control pests. Especially because they are extremely damaging to the environment and towards the human kind!
