Tired of teaching content, and then having no ideas for students to display their knowledge creatively. The following Bloom's Taxonomy activities are hands on, practical and creative. This pack contains rainforest activities. The activities involve tasks about rainforest animal and vegetation, deforestation, human impacts and herbal medicine derived from rainforests.
Using Blooms Taxonomy Framework, this resource will enable you to use it as a tool for higher order thinking and build upon the work that you have taught them about the subject. Staring with basic skills such as knowledge and understanding, students then will be challenged to apply facts that they learned and apply it in creative ways.
For example, a Create Task asks students to create a carnivorous plant that can survive in a rainforest. Students will have to recall their knowledge about plant adaptations and suggests ways on how it would feed, grow and reproduce. It will be a good class challenge as students will come up with varying unique designs.
It is also great to be used as an independent task or a homework extension for students that need an extra challenge. The framework allows you to date when they have completed a task so you can keep track of their progress. In the classroom, I like them to finish at least 3 activities before advancing to the next skill set.
As a heads up, some of these activities will prove to be of more value when completed together as a whole class, and therefore you may want to select those activities and use them as class competitions or whole class learning experiences.
