Wacky Week Wednesday - World Rainforest Week - 10/12-18

World Rainforest Week was created to increase public awareness of rain-forest destruction and motivate people to protect Earth’s rainforests and their inhabitants.
No matter where we are on this planet, we are connected to these ecosystems. Over 40% of the world’s oxygen is produced from the rainforests; they are indeed the lungs of our planet.

Here are two neat books about rainforests:

Here is an excellent website from the Rainforest Alliance with:
forest facts, online games, virtual rainforest trips, animal and plant facts, and activities.

Here is a video showing how to make a rainforest in a bottle.


And take a look at my Jungle Animals Clip Cards.
Love the realistic pictures!
