The Elastic Forest
Author: Aruna

The rubber industry is a key sector of the Indian economy – it’s one of the top 5 rubber producing countries in the world.  Native to South America (the Indians there called it the Crying Tree), the rubber plant was brought to India during British rule.  If you’ve ever visited Kerala, you may have been lucky enough to get a demonstration of how rubber is made.

Here is a terrific educational video for kids which shows how rubber is harvested, pressed and dried into sheets.  Have them spot all the things in the house that are made of rubber for an afternoon of fun!

    Nice post. I learn something new and challenging on websites I stumbleupon on a daily basis.
    It’s always interesting to read through articles from
    other writers and use something from other websites.
