The Forest of Food By: Emily Cornelius and Katie Reed
<ul><li>One day in the forest lived a population of deers, bunnies, and squirrels. They were so happy in the forest all living together with their brothers and sisters. </li></ul>
<ul><li>Then on one horrible day the mean carnivores of the forest snuck into their happy place in the forest, hoping to capture the deers, bunnies, and squirrels. </li></ul>Shhhh!!!
<ul><li>The evil carnivores caught some of them without any of their family members seeing and hurried away without one single noise. </li></ul>Help us!!! You’ll never get out!!!
<ul><li>All the heterotrophs soon realized that their loved family members were missing, and they knew that it had to be the evil carnivores who snatched them. They needed to get them back before it was too late, but how? </li></ul>Where is everybody??
<ul><li>A favorite deer that was part of the community, Gabe, thought long and hard to find a way to get them back. </li></ul><ul><li>“ I have an idea!” said Gabe. “We need to eat a big meal to give us energy to sniff our way into the forest.” he said. </li></ul>Let’s eat a nutritious meal to get us going!!!!
<ul><li>They all ate huge meals. The deers ate green grass, the bunnies ate juicy carrots, and the squirrels ate acorns. When they were all finished they left to find their loved ones in the dark forest. </li></ul>
<ul><li>A few long days went by in the forest, when all of a sudden they heard noises nearby…. </li></ul>shh!
<ul><li>They all looked around when Gabe noticed that their family members were tied around a tree. </li></ul><ul><li>“ How are we going to get them down without the carnivores seeing?” asked Gabe. </li></ul><ul><li>“ I don’t know.” answered Lucy the squirrel. </li></ul>Help us!!!!!
<ul><li>Gabe decided to stand up for himself and his fellow animals. He went up to the carnivores nervously but bravely to ask them to stop hunting them. </li></ul>
<ul><li>“ I’m sick of you guys bullying us around and hunting us!” yelled Gabe. “Go hunt somewhere else!!” he added. </li></ul><ul><li>“ Why should we?” yelled back the carnivores. </li></ul><ul><li>“ Because you are eating our family who we love. How would you like it if someone ate your family?” said Gabe bravely. </li></ul>Leave us alone!
<ul><li>“ I guess we can go hunt in another part of the forest, that is just how we were taught to live when we were younger.” said the carnivores. “We will leave you guys alone.” they added. </li></ul>“ We will leave you guys alone!”
<ul><li>So they all went back to their homes all happy to see their families again. The carnivores left them alone for good. </li></ul>
<ul><li>Gabe the deer became the hero of the community for being the leader in saving the family members and standing up to the carnivores. </li></ul>
<ul><li>The carnivores still stayed on the top of the food chain but it will always be remembered when Gabe the brave deer stood up for his community and saved everybody. </li></ul>
