Year 3 Become Rainforest Rangers

Back on 5th May, Year 3 visited the Eden Project and became ‘Rainforest Rangers’.  As rangers, the children learnt about how the plants in the Amazon rainforest can provide food, water, shelter and cooking equipment. Some children were asked to dress up in the types of clothing that Rainforest Rangers would wear – they weren’t too keen on the idea of leeches getting through the holes where are shoelaces were on their trainers!

The children took part in role play activities, spent some time with the staff at the Eden Project, and looked around the Tropical and Mediterranean biomes. They found out lots of information about how and why different plants can be useful, and talked a little about Fairtrade and how what they buy can support communities who live in the rainforest.

The staff the Eden Project commented on how attentive, interested and well-behaved the children were; Pam said “I wish all groups who came here were like you!” What a lovely compliment to receive! Thank you to staff at the Eden Project for their hospitality.
