Rainforest Day

After gymnastics we went to a friend's house and spent the afternoon studying the rainforest. We're doing an Around the World Expo with our larger homeschool group and our family has chosen Peru as our country of study. Because our kids like Diego so much I thought that Peru might be a good choice and it might be fun to focus on rainforests. Our friends are studying Brazil. I didn't have a lot planned but did want the kids to get a feel for the different layers in a rainforest and the species that live in each layer. As you can see by the photo I had little to do with the results. I cut out a few trees and a few of the animals after they were coloured but other than that, both kids did all the work themselves. Once again Mickey had her own agenda!!
