The two week theme about the Rainforest we do at our preschool is one of my favorites! It also is the time of year when we realize that the school year is coming to an end...and quickly! After this we have school breaks, field trips and events planned to keep time moving super fast.
This year I have one of my favorite bunches of kids and I want to hold on to them, but soon they will be graduating and off to Kindergarten.
Anyhow, here's how we did things in our classroom for the Rainforest theme:
The first day we talked about explorers and read "We're Roaming In the Rainforest". I asked the children what animals they'd like to see if they explored the rainforest. Then we made explorers to hang in our room. They also drew a picture of the animal they chose and added it to the final project. I loved these explorers! The idea was originally from KinderbyKim's rainforest page.
