Class experience

US Grade Pre-Kindergarten - 1
Students will learn about the layers of the rainforests, where rainforests are found around the world, and interesting facts about some of the unique animals that inhabit them
I am teaching this class because rainforests are my favorite ecosystem, and I am enthusiastic about sharing my passion for wildlife with students. When I visit rainforests on different continents, I am always struck by the similarities in characteristics such as buttress roots and liana vines, versus the stark differences in wildlife biodiversity. There are so many amazing rainforest creatures, I thought an ongoing class would be the perfect opportunity to explore them all!

*Please note: if you do have a printer that takes cardstock, I recommend printing many of the crafts on cardstock to make them more durable and long lasting. If you don’t have a printer, feel free to be creative and draw your own version of the project, or cut animals out of magazines. 
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
  • Google Slides
  • Youtube
Scissors are needed for the recommended optional craft projects and parental guidance is required for the use of scissors.
