Anacondas, and Anteaters, and Monkeys! Oh my!

Well, our rainforest animal project was a complete success!  See 'Rainforest Fun' post for more details. It's so amazing what these kids can come up with when given a little room to be creative.  My students did a wonderful job with their oral presentations and I did everything I could to make it a positive experience for them so that they could start to see public speaking as a fun challenge.  I was so proud of all of them for having the guts to get up and present in a formal way.  I can't show you any of their great speeches, but I can show you their projects, so here it goes!

Green Anaconda- Over 30 feet long!

Giant Anteater- It's amazing what some styrofoam and felt can do!

Orangutan! Clearly mom helped, but super creative nonetheless!

Tarantula- Realistic enough to creep me out!

 Toucan, Capuchin Monkey, Caiman, and Sock Gorilla (I'm just tickled about this one!)

I am a little depressed because some lucky teacher on facebook announced that her last day was Friday.  I still have 3 full weeks left!  Aaack!  But, we've got lots of fun stuff planned for the last few weeks, so hopefully it flies by.  If you are one of the lucky ones who are already finished, quit rubbing it in our faces already! :)

  1. Wow!! They were creative, weren't they!? Thanks for sharing. I found you through Pinterest, and I am so glad I did! I am also following your TpT store. I am a new sped teacher and blogger, so anything I can learn from the more experienced teachers and bloggers is a plus. :-)
