Learning about the rainforest can be more fun than you think. The class discusses vocabulary-in-context as they cut cardboard boxes, destined to become part of a rainforest model. Small groups of children color, cut, and construct various parts of the rainforest. When they are done, they put their pieces together to create a mini rainforest to discuss. They examine their model as they talk about epiphytes, vines, tree leaves, the canopy, bromeliad, liana, and how light gaps occur to provide each specimen with the light it needs to thrive.
