Kids of the Rainforest

What is it like to live in the rainforest?

It can depend on where you live. The Yanomami in Brazil often live in large, communal houses while the Embera prefer living in small house on stilts to protect themselves from flooding rivers.

In some places, kids have to study far away from their parents because there are no schools nearby; other villages have a  one-room school where all the community’s children study together.
