Rainforest Teacher Worksheets

Rainforests are home to the most diverse animal and plant species. They only cover six percent of the Earth's surface, but the account for more than half of the world's plant and animal species. Rainforests are hot, humid, and they receive a large amount of rainfall annually. These section of our web site works to help students understand the dynamics of rainforests.

Did you know that tropical rainforests are the home to over 30 million species of animals and plants? Another cool fact is that tropical rainforests are home to many of the foods we eat, such as bananas, cinnamon, and passion fruit. Rumberry, a fruit found in the Amazon, must be harvested by canoe due to the strength of the waters. Tropical rainforests are not only home to many animals and plants, but also to certain people.

While you teach students about the rainforests, also teach them the importance of recycling. The small choices that we make today, could mean a great deal to the rainforests tomorrow.
