Trail 6 - Rainforest Homes

Rainforest People sometimes live with all their family members under one roof called a communal house. This can sometimes house hundreds of people!

How many people would you live with if your parents, sisters, brothers, grandparents, aunts, uncle, and cousins all lived together under one roof?

Houses are made out of forest materials, such as palm leaves, trees and clay. They are often built on stilts for protection from mud, rain and animals.



HAMMOCKS or sleeping mats are used for beds. There are usually separate huts at the edge of the village for cooking and community meetings.
