Lesson Summary: This lesson builds on whatever prior knowledge students have on how plants survive in different climates and environments before focusing in on how plants in the rainforest have adapted to overcome challenges like heavy rain, thin soil, and fierce competition for sunlight. In a hands-on station rotation activity, groups of students work together to build model plants to meet a specific need or challenge. They can test how their design responds to rain and test the stability of root structures, and then see real-life examples of how rainforest plants respond to that challenge. Adaptable for grades 4-6. Suggested pre-work: review biomes, explore photos or videos of tropical rainforests
