National Geographic for Kids

Hello Everyone,

I hope you have all had a lovely long weekend and that you managed to enjoy the warm weather on Friday and Saturday, along with any VE Day celebrations- it has been wonderful to hear of your news from your online work today..

Over the weekend I came across a great website- National Geographic for Kids. It is full of information from around the world with facts about volcanoes, to tigers and aboriginal art. I especially enjoyed finding out about rainforests around the world.

Did you know that…

1. Rainforests cover about 6% of the Earth‘s land surface.

2. In Central American rainforests, rival strawberry poison dart frogs might wrestle for up to 20 minutes!

3. It can take ten minutes for a falling raindrop to travel from a rainforest’s thick canopy to the floor.

4. A tree known as the idiot fruit grows in Australia‘s Daintree rainforest.

5. The rhinoceros hornbill bird from southeast Asian rainforests has a hornlike structure on its head that looks like an extra beak!

I’d recommend you take a look at the website and find some facts that interest you-

Have fun!!

Mrs Fennelly
