1 What is Special about Rainforests? Rainforest Activities By the Erie Zoo Objective: Students will work in teams to identify the importance of the rainforests to the world, people, and plants and animals. Procedure: Each team should be assigned a block on the worksheet and through reading and discussion fill in the worksheet block. Discussion questions: What is a tropical rainforest? Where are tropical rainforests located? Why are tropical rainforest important? What do you think the world would be like if the tropical rainforests were all destroyed? How does a tropical rainforest compare to another forest you have been to? How would you describe the layers of a tropical rainforest? Do you know any stories, poems, or songs about the tropical rainforest? Would you live in a rainforest or in a different environment? Why? How can you help people understand the value of tropical rainforests? Can you think of a way that you can help save tropical rainforests? Materials: What s So Special About Tropical Rainforests? Worksheet Discussion questions (provided).

3 Rainforest Math Objective: Procedure: Divide the students into groups and give a math worksheet to each group. Group members must work together to determine which operations to use and then solve their problems. Have the students explain why they decided to use the operations they did and if there are other methods that would have worked. Materials: Math Worksheet (provided) Tropical Rainforest Article found at Calculators Meter sticks or metric rulers

4 1. Rainfall in tropical rainforests averages between 200-1,000cm per year. a. How much is this in feet? b. Average the height of your group members in centimeters c. How much higher is 1,000cm than this average? 2. Sweating (evapotranspiration) of rainforest trees releases up to 755 liters of water in a day. a. How many quarts is that? b. How many milliliters is it? c. Could you swim in a pool of tree sweat? 3. The largest catfish in the world is in the tropical rainforest of Vietnam and weighs over 300kg. a. Average the weight of your group members in kg. b. How does this average compare to a 300kg fish? c. How many people would a 300kg fish feed if each person at 100 grams at a meal? 4. About ¼ of all our medicines come from rainforest plants. a. If you doctor has 100 kinds of medicine, how many might come from rainforest plants? b. How many would come from other sources? c. Express these quantities in words. 5. Madagascar may have 300 species of frogs. a. How many fewer frog species does the US have?

5 b. Approximately how many times more species of frogs live in Madagascar than in the US? c. If you find two fifths of all Madagascar frog species in a week, how many have you missed? 6. 90% of rainforest species live in the canopy. a. What percent of species don t live in the canopy? b. Express these quantities as fractions. c. If you are an ant in a family of 1,000 divided the same way, how many of you live in the trees? 7. Rainforests have 170,000 of the world s 400,000 known plant species. a. What fraction of all of the world s plant species does this represent? b. How many plant species grow elsewhere? c. If 1,400 kinds provide cures for cancer, what percent of rainforest plants is this? 8. Borneo has about 2,500 species of trees compared to only 35 species in England. a. How many fewer species of trees are there in England than in Borneo? b. What percent of 2,500 is 35? c. Express this number as a fraction.

6 Rainforest Layers Objective: Students will draw a picture and label the layers of the rainforest in Africa. Procedure: 1. Ask students, Have you ever been in a rainforest? Explain to them that today they will be exploring what a rainforest in Africa looks like. 2. Show students a map of Africa and ask them, What do you notice about the location of the rainforests? 3. The rainforests are close together because they need warm temperatures and plenty of rain. These are conditions that are found at the equator. Inform students that the imaginary line, known as the equator, is located at the widest part of the earth between the poles. 4. Also point out to students that most of Africa is not a rainforest; that only one fifth of Africa is actually rainforests. 5. Review the layers of the rainforest with the students. 6. After the students recognize the four layers, hand out a piece of white paper so that they can make a picture showing the layers of the rainforest. 7. Display pictures to help students illustrate their drawing. Have the students label each layer. 8. Once the pictures are completed discuss each layer as a class. Materials: Map of Africa rainforests Rainforest layers White construction paper Pencils and crayons Pictures of different rainforest layers
