The Rain Forest is an exciting place! With this unit your students will learn about the fascinating creatures that make their home in this colorful habitat. A reproducible toucan cover is included that, when stapled to blank paper and cut out, makes a great writing book for all kinds of stories or reports. The unit also includes page after page of reproducible flash cards featuring pictures and vocabulary words, along with a list of exciting games and activities you can do with the cards. A mini-reading book features a description of the animals and layers of the Rain Forest.
The students can dress up as turtles by making their very own costumed shell! (Order our Butterfly Unit to make butterfly wings too!) This unit also includes the patterns for animal paper bag puppets: jaguar, frog, and two types of native primates! Students will delight in making animal figures, put together with paper fasteners, with movable body parts. These are great as story starters and make a great bulletin board display! You also get reproducible bulletin board border and stationery in the form of a piranha and a toucan! A giant macaw displays writing papers in the classroom and an anaconda will slither down the walls.
This book includes many other exciting activities and concludes with two end-of-the-unit certificates: one to send home and one for the classroom "Wall of Fame."
