As this month continues with the continent of South America, it is an excellent time to talk about the rain forest. I introduce biomes in the coming weeks and include rain forests as a reminder of a biome already discussed. Learning about different animals and providing a variety of art activities on some of these animals are much enjoyed by children.
Different kinds of parrots found in the rain forest can also be tied in with lessons on the vertebrate group of birds that are a part of the Zoology lessons for this month. If possible perhaps a type of mobile zoo can visit and share some birds or other animals found in the rain forest with the children. Another option could be to go on a virtual field trip of something relating to birds and or the rain forest.
