Learn all about the types of forests! The forest we will learn together is the rainforests, from someone who has actually been there! We will talk about the many animals, plants, and natural resources that call the rainforest their home. Based on what we learn, we’ll create a beautiful piece of rainforest artwork. We will even go on a virtual tour of a real African rainforest!
