This engaging topic will introduce rainforests around the world and where they are located. The focus will be on the largest rainforest habitat – the Amazon Rainforest in South America and why rainforests are important to life on earth. The children will learn about the different kinds of plants, animals and insects that live there as well as the food and resources that we get from the rainforest including medicines from plants. They will learn about the structure of the rainforest – the forest floor, understory, canopy and the emergent layer. The children will explore the climate in the rainforest and develop an awareness of what threatens the rainforests and makes them smaller rather than grow larger. They will learn about ways that we can protect the rainforest and care for our environment.
Please see the Topic Plan for more information.
