School webteam: April 2018
Zoolab visited school and the children got to go on a journey through the rainforest — with real rainforest animals and a ranger who really knows the rainforest inside out. It's all about experiencing the drama of the rainforest — from the dark forest floor to the dizzy heights of the emergent layer! Children learned about plants and got to meet a range of animals from ground-dwelling snails, 'travelling' snakes and canopy-dwelling tree frogs! They learned all about the layer(s) in which they live, who and what they eat, how they operate in different light levels, and all about life in the steamy tropics. They learned about rainforest location, rainfall and weather — and rainforest destruction.
