Rainforests cover only around six per cent of the planet’s surface, yet what an impact they have on our lives! They are not only beautiful, but crucial to our existence. They regulate the climate. They provide food, medicine and materials that we use each day (like rubber and wood). They are also home to more than half of the world’s animal and plant species (many as yet undiscovered). Studying rainforests can inspire a wealth of cross-curricular learning and also link to relevant themes like the protection of the environment.
