Medicines of the rainforest

This week we have spent some time learning about the many medicines that originate from the rainforest. We were given a list of patients with a variety of illnesses, and had to find some medicine from the rainforest that could help the ailments. We took turns being patients and doctors, and once we had figured out the medication needed, we filled in prescriptions for the sick person.
Below are some of these prescriptions, which show just some of the multitude of medicines available in the rainforest.
How sad it will be if all of this is lost one day!

  2. Hi 9T
    What an awesome slideshare. You have obviously been learning about the rainforest through some exciting tasks. Your prescriptions were presented very neatly so they were easy to read.

  3. Hi,
    It looks like you are learning lots of interesting things about the rainforest. Wouldn't it be great if we could just walk out into the forest and get our own medicine when we felt sick. It would be a shame to lose such a wonderful resource.
