‘I’m a Year 3 get me out of here!’
To get us hooked into our new topic for the Summer term, Year 3 took part in their own bush tucker trial. Taking a twist on this famous TV challenge, we ventured on our own blind discovery journey. The aim was to help us learn more about the products made from resources found in a tropical rain forest and begin a discussion on the impact of rainforest deforestation on our lives. How would our lives be different if the rain forests had been destroyed before these products had been discovered? What could we be losing now that the rain forests are disappearing at the rate of 60 acres per minute?
Bravely using our senses, we challenged ourselves to identify all of the different things we get from the rainforest and use in our everyday lives.
