Week In Review

We have had fun this week creating our Classroom Amazon Rainforest. The children have completed the Forest Floor Layer and the Understory Layer. We are currently working on the Canopy Layer. Some of the animals in our rainforest include: ants, jaguars, tarantulas, tapirs, anteaters, snakes, and red eyed tree frogs. We have also had lessons on landmarks in South America and we created Apple Pop Art.

Week in Review

Spring is here!!! We are ready to enjoy it and learn. This month we are going to learn about the continent of South America, reptiles, amphibians, and the artist Andy Warhol. This week the students learned about the characteristics of reptiles, types, and answered questions about them. We introduced the continent of South America and identified the names of the countries that make up the puzzle map. We began our classroom project creating a diorama about the first layer of the Amazon rainforest, "Forest floor".
