Melanie’s crew is learning about the Rainforest. Rainforests can be in Australia, Central and South America, and Africa. Some people are cutting down the Rainforest– I don’t like that because it destroys the creatures’ world. Some people are trying to save the Rainforest. We need to save it because it’s beautiful and we get fruit from there. I can’t wait to visit the Rainforest one day! If you want to learn more, I’ll tell you some interesting facts about the Rainforest:

  • The macaw is the most colorful creature.
  • The giraffe is the biggest animal there.
  • The sloth is the slowest mammal there.
  • The Blue Morpho butterfly is the biggest butterfly.
  • The difference between monkeys and apes is that monkeys have tails and apes don’t.
  • The jaguar is the most powerful creature and my favorite
