Why Are Children Forced To Fight In War?
 
 
Emily, Alison, Marlene and Keely

Children in war are called child soldiers. It is estimated 250,000 children are fighting in wars all over the world. It is thought 40% of children fighting in wars are girls. Child soldiers are active in at least 14 countries including India, Thailand, Colombia and more. Young girls are forced to marry soldiers. Many children are stolen from their families and forced to fight. Sometimes children have to kill their relatives so they can never return home. Africa has the most child soldiers. Kids can go into war as early as 6 years old. They are forced because bad people make them fight in wars so the other people don’t have to. Kids are forced to fight in wars because adults use the children as human shields so they don’t get hurt. Often kids are taken from their homes in the night when they are sleeping so they don’t know where they are going. They fight because adults are too afraid to so they get taken. Some kids volunteer to fight so their families are safe.

Where does water come from?

Grace, Heaven

Water builds up in the clouds causing precipitation which causes rain. Rain falls into the land and the extra rain that does not absorb into the soil or into the plants flows into the nearest rivers and oceans. The heat from the sun makes the plants transpire and the waterways evaporate again and fills the clouds with condensation again which that cycle keeps going on. Mostly everyone uses our like us and the animals and plants. Plants are important in the process of the water cycle. In BC people use up to 490 litres but here in Canada we use 330 litres of water a day. This water includes the water we drink, bathe in, wash our clothes in and our dishes and also for cooking. During the summer a mature pine tree consumes 20 litres of water a day . When people drink water, people are suppose to drink 8 glasses of water a day. The water we use in our home usually a ground water source such as wells, or a surface water source which is like lakes, oceans, rivers and more Some water is clean water and some is dirty. We are very lucky to have clean water unfortunately some places don’t for instance Africa has dirty water. In Africa they have to travel to get water and we just have to turn on a tap. Water falls from the sky that is called rain, rain happens when the water from oceans and goes up to the cloud it is called evaporation. We need to pay for water and it is expensive. In Africa they can get killed by water monsters such as alligators and others. The worst thing is sometimes kids go to get the water and then get killed. Sometimes if there are no lakes or rivers they have to go to oceans and in oceans there are more deadly animals like hippos’ crocodiles and deadly fish. In 2012 there was a story that a little girl had went to get water and feed some of her animals and almost got eaten by a crocodile but her animals got eaten. She got away safe and scared. Her family just heard
