Rain Forest- Afternoon on the Amazon

e started learning about Jungles and Rain Forests in our book club about Lions....this week we learned more during the Afternoon on the Amazon book.

We also took a field trip to the Rainforest Cafe ! Their educational field trips are not too expensive and certainly gave us a lot of information.

1. Review What is the rainforest...layers etc

2. Talked about the life cycle of frogs
I have a set of frogs in various metamorphic stages, from tadpole, all the way through frog.

3. poison arrow frogs and the bromeliad

4. Learn about Bromeliads

5. Make a bromeliad

6. Talk about all the animals that live in the rainforest

7. Share letters from Koko to class
Yes! Koko actually returned a letter to the class, along with a lot of FAQs and some samples of her artwork! It was very rewarding.

8. Make a rainstick
Ok, this is one of the most authentic, and harder, versions of rainsticks to make. There are easier ones available for younger kids.
