Y4CW and 4JP visit Tropical World leeds

What a day we have had!  We arrived at Tropical World at 10am and went to drop our bags off in the Education Rooms.  First stop was the Tropical World Centre where we saw a wonderful range of animals, many of which are native to the Amazon Rainforest.  We followed the trail through the aquarium, the desert, the rainforest canopy and then the nocturnal area.  We also visited the gift shop!  

After lunch, we were taken in to the local woods to compare this setting with the rainforest.  Debbie and Daisy, our instructors, showed us how to calculate the age and height of the trees there.  We also had a scavenger hunt to locate different plants and fungi and thought about what we would be looking for if we were in the Amazon Rainforest. 

We even bumped into our lovely bus driver.  He had never been before so thought he would see what all the fuss was about!
