Looking for an engaging way to end the school year? Try building a rain forest with your class! I have done this for the past 15 years and the kids learn so much and love to watch the rain forest come alive in our classroom. If you want to go the extra mile - then you can have the bulldozers show up and have the children work together to answer the question, "How can we save the rain forest?" Life cycles, forest layers, animals, plants, ecosystems, and tons of literacy activities!
