22 rainforest plant and animal posters with pictures of real animals and 7 facts about each plant or animal listed on the poster. An interactive activity is included where students must search the posters to find the animal that matches the clue they have on their paper. This is great for practicing the skills of skimming and scanning for information.
The plant and animal posters are listed here:
blue morpho butterfly
red bellied piranha
poison dart frog
red eyed tree frog
The last 4 pages are the search, find, and write activity with answer sheets. This is fun to do with partners. Place the posters all around the room and have the students search the posters until they find the animal that fits the clue. It would be best to review and talk about all of the animals and plants on the posters prior to this activity. It is great for a stand alone introduction to the plants and animals of the rainforest, or as an extension activity for your rainforest unit. I have a complete rainforest unit that you can find here:
Rainforest Thematic Unit
If you purchase the unit, there is no need to purchase these posters as most of them are included in the larger unit.
