Technology Ideas

  • Have students find stamps in KidPix that include animals and plants that depend on each other in the forest.
  • Take a digital camera on a walk and take pictures of places animals hide when the rain falls. Assemble into a slideshow.
  • In Kidspiration (on an interactive whiteboard or on the computer), have students sort pictures into outdoors and indoors.


"In Real Life" Ideas

Field trips, author/expert visits, community resources and ideas, etc.
  • Go on a field trip to a local zoo, or Animal Rescue Center. Ask for a guided tour giving your students an opportunity to learn more information about the different animals.
