In the Rainforest by Peter Riley
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This title examines the science skills you would need to survive in the rainforest. It begins with a map showing where rainforests are in the world. The text then looks at this habitat's unique features and at how these features might help you to survive if you were on an expedition there. Aspects of survival are considered and each one is supported by a science activity which readers can perform using everyday materials and equipment. For example, it shows you what to wear, how to find food and drinking water, how to make a shelter, find you way, stay safe and, if necessary, be rescued. There is an easy-to-follow activity on every other spread.
