Tropical Rainforest Unit 2015

Well, better late than never on my FAVORITE unit of the year, our Tropical Rainforest Unit!!  🙂  I’m going to share some projects that we worked on throughout this unit.

We did all sorts of project learning, from hands-on creations to tech projects.  Some of the hands-on projects included: researching and creating models of the 4 layers of the rainforest…measuring out life-sized rainforest creatures and creating them to their actual size…a reader’s theater puppet show…and various writing projects that we used to add to our rainforest classroom decor.  Some of the tech projects included: commercials encouraging people to save the rainforest (made using iMovie)…and animal reports!  We also went on a rainforest-themed field trip to the zoo!!  Below are pictures and videos of our experiences.  Enjoy, and maybe learn something along the way!!  🙂
