This product is AMAZING!!!!!! I used this as the core of my curriculum for a 21st Century Learning two week summer enrichment camp. We used every part of the unit. Making our own rain forest in a terrarium was a huge hit for the kids. They loved watching the fog, and the rain. The mural project was one of our last projects and the kids spent much time ensuring that it was perfect. We used it as our back drop for a musical theater play about the rain forest. The museum cards, masks, cutouts, everything was wonderful and made our investigation an amazing time for all.
The rainforest is one of the most fascination habitats on earth, and children (and their teachers, too) never seem to tire of learning more about the plants and animals of this enormous forest system. I hope you'll find some of these resources helpful in inviting your students to A Rainforest Rendezvous!
