The students will be able to list at least 5 facts about the Amazon Rainforest based on what they have learned so far. They will be able to convert those facts into a digital book on the iPad with the help of a teacher. Students will also be exploring why animals are becoming extinct and why the Rainforests around the world are disappearing. They will show their knowledge of everything they have learned so far through the use of their digital books.
Students will learn about the last layer of the rainforest: the Forest Floor. They will be shown a video presentation, which will include information on why the rainforests around the world are disappearing. By the end of the week, they will have been working towards creating a digital book on all the information they have learned about the Amazon Rainforest.
