The Aquarium's presentation reinforced science objectives to introduce concepts about tropical rainforests. Students “traveled” across continents identified locations of tropical rainforests, observed live animals, and connected their ideas with evidence to make conclusions about how the animals survive in this vital ecosystem.
Second grade was treated to a Rain Forest presentation by the Loveland Aquarium! We learned about continents where Rain Forests exist, as well as about several creatures that live there. It was great, although not everyone wanted to touch the creatures. Mrs. Harrison's class is shown in this post.
