Hello Dolphin and Blue Room Friends! I hope everyone is doing well. I am so sorry that our school year ended early. We did not have time to talk about some of my favorite things. One of them is the Rainforest. Here are some Rainforest facts.
The Rainforest has trees that can grow three hundred feet tall! They make up what we call the Emergent Layer. This is where eagles, macaws, bats and butterflies live.
The lower treetops are called the Canopy. This is where monkeys, toucans, tree frogs and sloths live. Did you know that Red Eyed Tree frogs and sloths never touch the ground?
Next we have the Understory. Spider monkeys and ocelots live here as well as frogs and snakes.
The last layer of the Rainforest is called the Forest Floor. It is home to snakes, insects like the leaf cutter ants and frogs like the Poison Dart frog. Anteaters and jaguars live here too.
There are many beautiful butterflies in the Rainforest. The Blue Morpho butterfly is a bright blue and you can see straight through the wings if a Glasswinged butterfly. Here is a butterfly for you to decorate.
There are many kinds of snakes in the Rainforest. Some are really big like the Boa constrictor and the Anaconda. Here is a snake I made out of paper. Mine is green but you can make one in any color!
I hope you enjoy these projects. I miss you all!
