  1. 1. Wetlands<br />Here is some information about wetlands!<br />I am an older student, I am talking to a tourist, my format is a power point, and my topic is: What is a wetland?<br />
  2. 2. What is a wetland?<br />A wetland is an area that is covered with a shallow layer of water<br />
  3. 3. Why are wetlands important?<br />Wetlands are important because we get freshwater from them.<br />Wetlands are also important because they prevent floods <br />Also, wetlands can be used to make things<br />Another reason why wetlands are important is that they are many animal and plants homes<br />Last, wetlands are important because they clean out the water<br />
  4. 4. Three major types of wetlands<br />Bogs<br />Swamps<br />Marshes<br />
  5. 5. Bogs<br />Bogs get most of their water from precipitation<br />Depending on where the bog is located that will be its climate like: Florida is warm and Michigan is cold <br />Bogs can form on a lake by having sphagnum moss growing over top of the lake<br />
  6. 6. Swamps<br />Many swamps have very rich soil and that’s why people used to drain them and use them for agriculture or other development<br />There are two kinds of swamps: forest swamps and shrub swamps<br />Shrub swamps: water from river and streams<br />Forest swamps: water from floods<br />
  7. 7. Marshes<br />The marshes soil is in saturated conditions and that’s what marshes are adapted to<br />Marshes receive water from the ground<br />In the soil, there is many nutrients which are needed for the plant growth<br />There are two kinds of marshes: tidal and non-tidal<br />Non-tidal marshes– brackish or alkaline water and occur along streams<br />Tidal marshes- along protected coastlines and salty or brackish water<br />
  8. 8. What are most wetlands made from or filled up from?<br />Wetlands can be made from grassy areas covered by streams or shallow water<br />Wetlands can also be filled up from spring rains<br />
