Rainforest Animal Research
Dear Parents,We have begun our much-anticipated unit about tropical rainforests. We will be studying many aspects of this fascinating ecosystem in the classroom, in the library, in art, and at home. The children will learn about the layers of the rainforest and the life that is sustained in each layer. Our study will also include animal classifications, life cycles, and ecology.
To gain a deeper understanding of all these concepts, each child has selected a rainforest animal to study. Your child’s only homework this week will be to research and gather notes about his/her animal. Please have your child answer using bullet points (not complete sentences), and help your child use his/her own words. We will be using the information your child gathers for several projects at school.
Students can find information on the Internet or from books. The Edna Maguire Library page also has great research links (go to the Classroom Links page), or you can use the links below
This assignment is due back on May, 17th
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask. We are hoping that this will be an enjoyable, enlightening experience for your child.
