Storyboard Text

  • Look at this beautiful island!
  • Yes, indeed! 
  • We must try and continue to build houses
  • The Polynesians had brought with them food the food crops they were planning to plant, but they found that many did not grow well on the island. 
  • The Polynesians were able to build houses, grow and prepare food, make clothing, keep warm during cold and rainy seasons and care for their children.
  • The amount of palm forest used resulted in a huge deforestation and newly exposed soil began to erode. The erosion decreased the soil's fertility making it less appropriate for the growth of food crops as well as trees. 
  • The alternative ending could have been that they should have used different resources to build the houses.
