The Rainforest Tic-Tac-Toe lesson is meant to be a culminating exercise for a unit on the rainforest. It is based on the idea of using student’s learning styles and strengths to review and dig into information on rainforests. Each box (16 total) has a unique project students can do to review information previous learned and dig deeper into something they are interested in. Given a choice, students will usually pick a style that is their strength, but if they chose to do extra credit, they must pick a box next to their original choice, thus stretching their comfort zone and engaging other learning modalities.
There are 16 fun project ideas students can pick from. This allows for the motivation of choice and an opportunity to be creativity and fun while reviewing and learning.
Please be aware that ½ of the profit will be going to a teacher-lead organization called Save The Rainforest, Inc. to help preserve and educate about rainforests. Specifically, this money will be earmarked for a project called Green Rainforest in Panama. A group of dedicated researchers and naturalists are establishing a jaguar reserve to protect the migration corridor of their largest predator. Your purchase will actually be protecting rainforests and jaguars along with the biodiversity found in that area!
