Supplies Needed to make a Rainforest Diorama:
-Rainforest Diorama Printable PDF (You can download the 2-page Rainforest Background at the bottom of this post. The full version of this printable rainforest diorama can be found in our store here.)

How to Make an Easy Rainforest Diorama:
Begin by cutting out a the parts of the printable, including the rainforest animals, trees and garden pieces. And if you want to add dimension to your diorama box, you can cut out several long strips of green construction paper to add more trees.
Make sure to vary the length of the strips so that your diorama looks more realistic. Once you have all of your trees and animals cut out, it’s time to start assembling your diorama.
The rainforest diorama background printable is perfect to attach to the diorama box by itself. But, if you want a more three dimensional look, add construction paper trees and even artificial rocks to your rainforest diorama box.
The Amazon rainforest is a unique and beautiful place, so it’s no surprise that there are many trees here. For example you can find rubber trees, which produce natural latex to make their own sap boots! Another interesting tree in the rainforest is an oil palm tree called “palm-heart”.

Tree Cutouts for the Rainforest Diorama
The trees in a rainforest are so tall and they form such an impenetrable barrier that it is difficult to see what lies beyond them. There’s no sign of life anywhere – not even any small animals or insects! This area has been called “the lungs of the Earth.”
Some of the most biodiverse forests on Earth are found in Amazon. The rainforests harbor an incredible array and variety both morphologically as well ecologically, with many different tree species proving themselves to be essential parts for maintaining a healthy ecosystem by providing shade or nourishment from their roots – without them we would face starvation during hot days!
The diorama should be made to look like a real rainforest, with layers of different plants and trees.
-Include a river or stream in the diorama, along with animals that live in the rainforest.
-Make sure to use materials that are environmentally friendly and safe for children.
-The diorama can be used to teach about the rainforest ecosystem and how it functions.
