First, read the Rainforest Information document.

Finally, have a look at the Activity sheets. There are three different versions of the activity; the Year 3 sheets have one star at the bottom of the pages, the Year 4 sheets have two stars at the bottom of the pages or if you want an extra challenge, try the sheets with three stars at the bottom.
Label each layer and cut and stick (or just copy into your book if you aren’t able to print) the definitions to match each layer. Draw in the animals, thinking about why that layer would be a suitable habitat for them.
