Description

Students in teams invent an animal that is specifically adapted to the rain forest environment, focusing on the Amazon Rain forest. They create a tear-art picture of the creature and present it in class. Students will first list adaptions animals have, then discuss different animals in the rain forest, then create their creatures and later describe adaptations of their specific creature to other students in class. This is a fun way to get students thinking about their surrounding environment including brainstorming adaptions that creatures who live in the rain forest can have.
