25 Science KS2 AT They recognise that there is a great variety of living things and understand the importance of classification. They explain that different organisms are found in different habitats because of differences in environmental factors [for example, the availability of light or water]. Life and Living Things the part played by evaporation and condensation in the water cycle Materials and their Properties

26 The structure of a rainforest

27 Identify Rainforest Structure

28 Structure of a Rainforest

29 Rainforest Models

30 Rainforests and the Water Cycle Precipitation (Rain) Condensation Evaporation Transpiration

31 Rainforests and the Water Cycle

32 Transpiration from rainforest trees BBC CONGO Clip

33 Rainforests – The Lungs of the Planet

34 Rainforests and Climate Change Deforestation leads to: Reduction of emission of oxygen Reduction of absorption of carbon dioxide Increase of carbon dioxide in atmosphere Increase in global temperatures Melting ice caps and glaciers Rising sea levels – flooding of coastal areas More violent storms and hurricanes

35 Climate Change

36 Rainforests and Art Henri Roussos

37 Practical demonstration of how rain forms over rainforest
