Year 4 - Rainforests linking to Geography, History, Art, Science

It was really important to me that the children were immersed within our new topic. We have created a rainforest that enabled the children to use their senses for our opening experience. We then focussed upon Julianne Koepcke where i asked the question "How would you survive alone in the rainforest for 11 days?"

Looks good and I bet the children feel fully immersed in the topic.


Thanks Karen. The children love the classroom and when entering they had to use their senses. We all closed our eyes, with sounds of the rainforest playing, different fragrances and I made sure it was really humid!

Good idea about using fragrance - might magpie that idea!
