Activities - Rainforest Superpowers
1. Adaptations charades
Make cards for all the adaptations in the rainforest. The 360VR Rainforest Walk might help you! Now play a game of charades. Show the superpowers for rainforest plants by miming them out. For example, your hands can walk along a friend’s arm to represent creeping plant climbers or you can stand with feet wide apart to represent large roots, etc.
2. Rainforest diorama
Make leaves, vines and trees out of creative materials such as cardboard cut-outs, threads, sponge, scrunched-up papers, fibres etc. Collect twigs and branches from the garden to make tree trunks. Add in some jungle animals to complete the model.
