Year 4 have been contacted by Hetty from the WWF who needs our help desperately. The Tropical rainforests of the world are at risk of destruction due to deforestation. We need to persuade people that the rainforests are too precious to just cut down!
We will be looking at where rainforests are located around the world and researching what valuable products we get from the rainforest without destroying it.
To support our work in English we will be studying ‘The great Kapok tree.’
See if you can find out what sorts of plants grow in the rainforest and which animals live there.
How many medicines started off as plants in the rainforest?
