Reading- The Amazon Rain Forest

Amazon Forest!
Thursday 12th June 2014

Main Idea:- Amazon forest
The Main Idea?
Subject: Amazon Forest
Details: It talked about the layers of the forest.
Which are the Forest floors, Understory and the Canopy.
Main Idea: Amazon Floors..

It had some interesting facts about the Amazon forest.
What I have learned that the Forest Floor is the lowest region. It only has two percent of sunlight, however, it is rich rotting vegetation and dead organisms.
The Understory is so Thick that it has very little air movement, and only has 2-5 percent of sunlight. Many of the plant in the understory have large, broad leaves to collect as much sunlight as possible.  
Canopy is where the action begins. It has 80 percent of sunlight and the Canopy is where the Wealth of the Rainforest fruit and flower grow.

Words I don't know?

Region- An Area which is especially part of an Country.
Decomposers- the state or process of rotting; decay.
