Yesterday we visited South America in history. The lesson plan was sort of boring so I jazzed it up a bit. We made one wall in our basement playroom the rain forest jungle. We made a huge kapok tree and then drew all the animals that live in the rain forest. We placed the animals that live in the canopy of the rain forest in the canopy and the animals that live in the understory in the rain forest in the understory. Then all three boys took turns acting out the book, The Kapok Tree. Overall the lesson was fun and the boys are still talking about it.
