On Wednesday we went on a walk down to the Heugh to look for similarities and differences between tropical rainforests and Scottish Woodland. We found that they are quite similar in some ways such as: they both have trees, living things, animals, forest floor, understorey. They are different because the rainforest has different animals, the rainforest isn’t man-made, doesn’t have rabbit holes, paths or frost on the ground because it’s always hot in the rainforests.
On Monday we had Calum from Cool Creatures in to visit us and show us animals from the rainforest. The animals were really interesting and he told us lots of facts about them.
