DESCRIPTION: By using various art supplies, students will develop a wall mural of the various layers of the rainforest. Students will also research different organisms found in the rainforest and place them in the appropriate layer of the rainforest on the wall mural
MATERIALS: reference materials, construction paper, tissue paper, crayons, markers, scissors, and various art supplies
1. The team assigned to researching the structure of the rainforest is in charge of putting a model of the rainforest up on the wall.
2. After the trees are up on the wall, each student is responsible for researching an organism found in the rainforest and writing a short summary about that organism.
3. Each student then has to give their summary to the class. After the student gives his/her summary, he/she has to place a picture of their organism on the wall mural in the appropriate layer. If there is room on the mural, the summary can also be placed by that organism.
