The Rainforest

By Katie Dusek 

* Means vocabulary.


The average climate
The Average Climate

  • In an average year in a tropical rain forest, the climate is very humid. Mostly because of rainfall, which is about 20 inches per year.

  • It is found near the *equator. That means that there is more direct sunlight hitting the land and sea than anywhere else.


Plants
Plants

  • The plants in the rainforest are very large and bright.

  • It has a lot of bamboo.

  • One of the many flowers there is the Bougainvillea. It has Bright pink peddles.

  • The temperature is very humid there, so they need to be able to *absorb a lot of water in order to live.

  • Some of the main plants are- Curare (a large leaf that is often called an “elephant ear”), Durian (a very tall tree that grows to be about 90 to 130 feet), and the Mangrove Forests ( their roots look like large bowls so they can live on the edge of where the rain forest meets the ocean)


Animals
Animals

  • The animals need to be able to live in thick muggy areas. Which means, no Polar bears. 

  • The “ king of the forest” is our very own mascot. That’s right, the tiger.

  • Another type of animals that are common are monkeys. From howler monkeys to chimpanzees, there is never a quite moment in the rain forest.

  • Even in the night the bats, owls, and some types of mammals are *nocturnal.
