Lesson #3

What are the layers of the rain forest?


To learn about the layers of the tropical rainforest go to:

Layers of the Rainforest and print out information for class discussion and notetaking.



A. Go to Tropical Rainforest Strata: Label Me! and print out the document. You may wish to copy and print the document from AppleWorks instead, in order to increase its size. Label the rain forest layers and color the diagram.


B. Children will use Kid Pix Studio Deluxe to create a rainforest habitat. They may chose to use the rain forest picture under the Landscape option or create their own rain forest environment. Save the picture. The children will be able to add animals to their habitat later (see next section).
