Forest fires

  1. 1. THE THINGS THAT FIRE CAN DO……… Cook food
  2. 2. Light up the dark
  3. 3. Keep out the cold & Keep people warm
  4. 4. We do not use fire carefully
  5. 5. Forest fires Myrtle Barber Carpenter
  6. 6. Lets Read the Poem…!!! Someone dropped a burning match unheeded by the way, It caught on fire some underbrush; Its user did not stay.
  7. 7. Unheeded: Carelessly Underbrush: brushes and plants that grow close together under trees.
  8. 8. From grass to brush, From brush to tree, So stealthily it ran, That no one ever guessed or knew Just where that fire began
  9. 9. Stealthily: Quietly and secretly.
  10. 10. Someone put a campfire And failed to put it out. A breeze came and quickened; The embers spread about.
  11. 11. Campfire : an outdoor fire made by people Quickened : become faster or quicker Embers : red hot pieces of wood or coal
  12. 12. And soon the wood were blazing, The fire spread and spread, The trees that took long years to grow, Stand blackened now and dead.
  13. 13. Someone saw a little fire As he was passing by. He did not stop to put it out ; He did not even try.
  14. 14. He had not started it, of course he has no time to spare, That it might start a forest fire, He did not even care.
  15. 15. What do you think the poet wants to say in this poem?  Most of the fires are caused due to carelessness.  Most of the fires are caused by thieves and robbers.  Most of the fires are caused by the heat of the sun.
