21 Jan Tropical Rainforest
Look at what we have been learning in Year 3
Our big question in topic this week was ” What is the climate like in the tropical rainforest?”
We showed our understanding of the hot and wet rainforest climate by planning and building an office for the Rainforest Alliance out of Lego. We had to design it to make sure the people would stay dry and cool but also to keep creepy crawlies and rainforest predators out! Ideas included raising the building off the ground on stilts to avoid jaguars; including large windows with blinds to let air in, but insects out; and sloped roofs and covered balconies to allow the rainwater to run off. It was a tricky brief, but the outcomes were well-considered, inventive and fit for any Amazon explorer!
