Rainforest Fun

Teaching the Rainforest is one of my all time favorite units!  I love the rainforest and all its exotic features!

Here are some of the super fun things we did to learn about the rainforest!

We read and made our own rainforest booklet.  Then we learned about the layers of the rainforest by cutting and pasting labels!

We created this adorable red-eyed tree frog!

We made rainsticks out of beans and toilet paper tubes.  Then we learned how to make rain sounds using our sticks.  We closed our eyes and imagined we were in the rainforest.

I love this video.  There is  no narrating, but there are rainforest sounds with some great pictures of animals found in the rainforest.


 We made monkeys with our names on them for our hallway display!

We also made rainforest dioramas.  For most of my kiddos, this was the first time they had ever heard of a diorama and had the chance to make one, so they were pretty excited.  

We recapped what we learned by making this adorable monkey!
