Animals in the Rain Forest

Today we discussed animals in the rain forest. We watched a short clip from Discovery Education about entitled "Animals in the Rain Forest". It led us to discuss the vocabulary words-endangered and extinct.  We added animals to our 3-D rainforest from yesterday. Here are a few:

Later, we read Slowly, Slowly,Slowly" said the Sloth by Eric Carle. One of my students checked it out from the media center today and was super excited. We made a classbook Rain Forest, Rain Forest What Do You See? Each child drew an animal with the rain forest as a background. They did an excellent job!  Here are a few:

 Cock of the Rock
 Howler Monkey
 Harpy Eagle

 Sun Bear

Tomorrow, we will learn about the plants of the rain forest.
