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- https://www.natgeokids.com/uk/
