To initiate our rainforest endeavors, we first learned about what makes a rainforest a rainforest! There are two kinds of rainforests, and they are characterized by climate, the amount of rainfall they receive, and their location on our planet! Our focus centered upon the tropical rainforests of South America, but there are also temperate rainforests that are located in higher latitudinal regions. Because young children learn best by participating in their learning experiences, we created our own rain storm! Using drum sticks, cymbals, shakers, triangles, and tambourines, we recreated the different phases of a tropical rainstorm!
