On Friday, we will have a visit from author, Melissa Stewart. She has written a number of awesome science books for young children and teens. Today we will be listening to one of her stories, No Monkeys, No Chocolate and taking notes on what we hear. Before we do this, we need to get a little background on rainforests.
As you explore these sites and listen to the story and view the pictures, think about what we have been learning in relation to biodiversity, ecosystem health, invasive species, and the importance of both abiotic and biotic interactions.
