Rainforest Exploration
Lesson Plan
Students create a display of a rainforest animal and its habitat.
Grade Level(s): K

Rainforest Fun
Decorate one of your bulletin boards with a green leaf pattern cloth for a background. Staple silk flowers on the board to make the board 3-D. Have several different rainforest animal silhouettes (cut-outs) placed on each child's desk. Have them write their name on the animal and decorate the animal any way they like. Staple these on the board with the monkeys in the trees, the butterflies in the air, and so on. Throughout the year they can add animals, pictures of plants found the rainforest and clips of information about the rainforest for year round learning. At the end of the year host a "showing" of your board to other classes and have your students share what they have learned. Have Fun!
