First up let’s take a look at a world map and see where the rainforests are! A bit of early morning geography.
This one shows you the continents and I’ve tried to edit it to show you where we are and where the rainforests at the same time too:
FINAL REMINDER – TODAY IS THE DEADLINE!!!!!
Literacy and Science
Let’s start by getting to know a few more animals of the rainforest!
Now you’ve met them, let’s learn a few more facts about the rainforest:
Quick note – ‘jungle’ is not a proper scientific term like ‘rainforest’ is. The word jungle is usually used to describe parts of the rainforest that have very dense undergrowth but people often use them interchangeably (without making a difference clear).
Time for some writing!
Imagine you are a rainforest explorer and you are writing up about some of the animals you have seen.
Pick one of the sheets below to use. Remember the next level of challenge after writing a complete sentence – e.g. It is a frog. – is to use a describing word. After that you can extend your writing further using joining words.
Access your music lesson:
Enjoy the Tinga Tinga Tales theme song as well 🙂
…and there’s this fun jungle song too!
Did you enjoy the songs?
P4C (Philosophy for Children)
Creative Friday! Here is lots of inspiration for rainforest art 🙂
You could even make your own rainforest world inside a box using craft materials, any rainforest animal toys you already have and/or any animals you make.
Let’s finish with a story…
This is a short video to start off with that has some important learning in as well as a very cute orang-utan (adults it does have an upsetting moment in it):
Now a story from me:
Here are the photos of your super learning this week (+ a big catch up of photos from m which is lovely to see) – well done!
What have you most enjoyed learning about today? What about this week? Did you prefer savannah animals to rainforest animals or the other way around?
I look forward to hearing from you and seeing your work.
Thinking of you,
