Success Criteria

  • I can name the four layers of a rainforest.
  • I can tell you about the climate in each layer.
  • I can tell you about the plants found in each layer.

 Today in Geography you are learning about the different layers of the rainforest. Rainforests are so dense with trees and plants that the forest floor gets very little light from the sun. There are 4 different layers in the rainforest all with different characteristics and different animal and plant species in each one. Go through the PowerPoint below and learn more about these layers.


Then choose your challenge –
