LO: To explain how plants have adapted to survive in the rainforest

Tuesday 9th June 2020

Last week we investigated some of the plants and trees found in the amazon rainforest. This week we are going to think about ways these plants have adapted to their habitat.

Adaptations are special features that allow a plant or animal to live in a particular place or habitat.

Read through the PowerPoint and think about the adaptations mentioned for some plants and tree of the found in the rain forest.


  • Now it’s your turn, you can design your very own plant and choose the habitat you would like your plant to live in.
  • Think carefully about the features your plant will have. Remember you can be as creative as you like!
  • Label your diagram and explain why it’s useful for the plant you designed to have the features you’ve included!
