Layers of the Rainforest

In Year 4 we are really enjoying our Geography topic and learning all about the rainforest. We have learnt that a rainforest is split up into different layers because of the amount of light and water it gets.  We know the names and climate of each layer and the plants and animals that live in each.

To help us remember all about the different layers we played a game, where we had to listen to lots of clues and act out which layer the clue related to.
