Last week Primary Five enjoyed a visit to Our Dynamic Earth to attend a Rainforest workshop. In the rainforest we studied which plants and animals were found in each layer. We experienced a heavy rainstorm and saw the impact of the rain on the environment.
In our workshop we looked in more detail at the orang-utan, an endangered species that is dependent on the rainforest habitat in the Asian rainforest which is under threat through deforestation. We debated many issues including zoos, pets, hunting, farming, transport and the use of products grown in the region. It was interesting to look at these important issues from different points of view and to explore possible solutions to safeguard a future for this beautiful animal.
Here are some photos from our trip.
