What Makes a Tropical Rainforest Special?

Students examine the characteristics of the tropical rainforest. Using a map, they locate the rainforests found around the world, continents and the equator. Using the internet, they research the various layers of the rainforest and label them correctly on a worksheet. They also research an animal found in the rainforest and write a report.
