This package is most suitable for 2nd semester 1st graders and 1st semester 2nd graders. To encourage research, I have included both a blank and filled out KWL chart accompanied with suggested guiding questions for students to find answers to on their own. To familiarize students directly with the rainforest, I have included an activity about the levels of the rainforest. There is also an activity comparing tropical rainforests with temperate rainforests. Since butterflies are a big part of the rainforests, there is a butterfly life cycle and a Monarch butterfly migration activity - - great for encouraging geography skills! To encourage math practice, there are 4 sheets full of word problems, as well skip counting and hidden picture activities (practicing adding and subtracting). To extend into Language Arts, I've included sentence building activity sheets, one which also encourages reminding students to capitalize the beginning of sentences and use correct end punctuation.
