Whatever happens with the world, The Survival Super Squad are always there helping however they can. They are true superheroes and help the planet everyday even without us knowing. Here are some reasons why they are superheroes:
The Amount of Water on the Earth
71% of the Earth is water covered and the sources of where all that water comes from include seas, rivers, lakes and of course, oceans which hold around 96.5% of all the water on the Earth. Water has so many jobs, which is why there is so much of it! It hydrates us, supports the environment and helps spread nutrients all over the world. It is something to protect as it protects us all the time.
Flowers Attract Insects
Flowers don't only look pretty, they also do so much for the planet. Bees and other insects are attracted to flowers because of their bright colours and enticing scent. Bees carry pollen from one flower to another in order to make a seed. Insects may be annoying when they are around you, but they do a lot for our world and one of the reasons why they are able to do so much is because of the flowers we grow.
Water Has Been on Earth For How Long?
Earth has had water on it since it began, or at least for 4.6 billion years as studies have now shown. If you have read The Daring Droplets books, you will know that the water cycle has been happening since the beginning of the Earth. However, it wasn't until the 1600s when people started to realise what the water cycle was, but now luckily we understand it enough to learn about it in our first few school years!
Flowers Care About Us
We all know that plants give us oxygen, but having flowers in your room can help you in a major way. Did you know that plants give out 10 times more oxygen than they use at night, meaning that a room with flowers in it is much more oxygenated than one without. They also have mental health benefits as by being around flowers, it reduces signs of depression. Since they care so much about our wellbeing, we should also care for theirs.
Water Can Turn Into So Many different Things
Obviously, we drink water everyday, which shows it as a liquid. When it gets cold we can see that water turns into ice, which makes a solid. Lastly, when water reaches boiling point, it turns into steam. There have been many shapeshifting superheroes, but none that are quite like this. There are so many uses of water, in each of its forms, and we are so lucky that it does everything it can to help us.
