This is a pack of 30 BLANK (black and white) hand-drawn rainforest animals. They are full-page printable worksheets that can be used for hundreds of ideas in your classroom, across all grades and subjects! The animals are drawn realistically, rather than in a cartoon fashion.
Check out the previews on the right and scroll down for a few ideas of how to use these templates in your classroom. These would be fun and meaningful activities to incorporate into a Science, Social Studies, or Language Arts unit on rainforest animals! What fun coloring sheets as well!
Language Arts: Write a story or poem inside or around the animal. Use the animal as an illustration in your own book. Do a research project on the animal and use the printable as a note-taking sheet.
Science: Label the parts of the animal. Draw the animal's habitat. Write details in or around the animal about the lifestyle and eating habits. Create a food chain using several animals and string.
Social Studies: Research the current topics around your animal. Is it frequently in the news? Being used to help society in some way? Endangered? Create a large mural of the rainforest around the world, and allow students to place the animals in the correct rainforest.
Art: Explore different art materials to create texture and shading. In most animals, the stripes or body designs have been left blank for your student to draw.
Math: Take a poll to see which animal is the class favorite. Use the animal printouts to make a giant bar graph. Use multiple printouts to represent proportions and ratios (ex 1 tiger to every 8 piranhas).
Classroom: Determine each student's favorite animal, write his/her name on the animal, and place it on the desk as a name plate.
I love drawing. If you see there is an animal that you REALLY want that is not included in this pack, please just let me know and I will be happy to add it for you.
