Summary of Explorer Magazine
The Children's Forest describes how children in Peru protect the rain forest. It also discusses South America's geography and habitats, including two types of rain forests. In "Children in Charge," Peter Winkler tells how Joaquin Leguia, a conservationist, convinced people in Peru to give children a part of the rain forest. This is called the Children's Forest. The children work to protect their forest by making trails and learning about its plants and animals. In "Explore South America," students discover the varied environment of that continent. A map shows physical features, such as the Andes, and habitats, such as the rain forests. "Rain Forests of the World" explains that tropical rain forests are near the Equator and stay warm all year. They may get as much as 400 inches of rain each year. Temperate rain forests are farther from the Equator. They have cool winters and get about 100 inches of rain.
