PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This Earth Day Activity Pack is inspired by Lynne Cherry's book The Great Kapok Tree: A Tale of the Amazon Rainforest. Each of the three activities below can be used to enrich your read aloud of this amazingly powerful book.

Nonfiction Read and Respond
This nonfiction article helps students learn more about the majestic Kapok tree species. The reading response questions attached to this article are a great way to measure your students’ nonfiction comprehension skills.

Informational and Opinion Writing Prompts
A variety of seven writing prompts gives your students plenty of choice when writing about Earth Day, protecting nature, and the interconnectedness of all living things.

Rainforest Art Project
This art project is a beautiful way to display some of the learning students gain as a result of your lessons surrounding The Great Kapok Tree. As part of this project, students will be able to identify the layers of the rainforest and draw an abstract version of the understory and forest floor, which are both featured as the setting of the book.
