This half term we are trying to answer the question: The orangutans are loosing their habitat; can they be relocated anywhere else in the world? We will be looking at the palm oil industry and the affect that it is having on orangutans natural habitat and comparing it to different biomes across the world.
To start our topic we had a survival day. We learnt lots of different skills that would be necessary to survive if we became stranded in the rainforest: we built fires, learnt first aid, built dens for shelter and filtered dirty water. Later in the day we practised our map reading skills in an orienteering activity and finished the day with a hot chocolate around the campfire.
