Literacy through Art, Science, & Social Studies
These attractive center task cards suggest projects for students to do to learn more about life in the rainforest. There are 2 different sets with18 cards in each set: grades 2-3, and grades 4-6. (Many of the cards are appropriate for both levels. Choose the ones that best fit the level of your class.)
These wall cards are patterned after the information plagues found in museums. They describe interesting plants and animals of the rainforest, and come in 3 reading levels: Preschool, Primary, and Elementary.
These animal images can be used two ways. Print just the images, cut out the eyes, and your students can "be" the animals. Print the images on the front, and the corresponding informational article on the back and your kiddos will have interesting items to read, as well as puppets to "play" with.
These materials teach students about the plants and animals of the rainforest. Subjects include Diurnal/Nocturnal, Plant Adaptations, Where Does it Live?, Animal Classification, and Rainforests Around the World. Students sort the self checking cards to learn.
