Class 3

Today class 3 pupils created their own rainforest in a jar.

South American country of Brazil is home to 30 percent of the world’s remaining rainforests. Ecosystems within rainforests are some of the most diverse in the world, providing a home to an extraordinary variety of plants and animals.  Rainforests are called so because they produce a huge amount of moisture. In fact, they don’t need very much rain to survive, because they make their own.  One canopy tree in the rainforest can create up to 200 gallons of water each year, which is why it is so humid in these habitats.

Now we can watch our tiny rainforest blossom.  This is the same process that keeps rainforests wet, even when there isn’t a lot of rain. Our gardens will sprout and start to grow without any additional water.
