Rain Forest Animals 2 ...2012

What an awesome, fast, fun, and educational week we had!
We learned about the layers of the rain forest as well as some of
the animals that call it home.
Snakes, lizards, bats, big bugs, and tropical birds
were a few of the highlighted animals.

Here is a peek at our week...

We learned that snake belly scales are called scoots!

we learned that chameleons are cool!
Did you know they change color when they are angry,
sick, hungry, seeking a mate;but not to hide?
The largest chameleon is as big as a cat.
The smallest can balance on your pinkie!

 using our imaginations

We learned that many kinds of bats live in the rain forest.
