Rainforest Poetry

'Who lives here?' PowerPoint introduces a 'conversation' poem about the creatures and habitat of the rainforest. It provides a structured step by step lesson to support composition. It also allows reinforcement of parts of speech particularly verbs and prepositions. Extended poetry task also provided for variety and possible differentiation. Several verse examples are provided for clarity. Rainforest booklet is provided for children to write their final draft for display or poetry portfolio. 'Rainforest List Poem' PowerPoint continues with a poetic theme and uses a simple format to motivate composition. This clear, concise and colourful presentation leads the learners step by step through the composition of a list poem based on a 'rainforest' theme. There is a grammar element throughout with an emphasis on nouns, adjectives and 'ing' verbs. I have found a poetry context an effective way to embed incidental grammar teaching. Although the outcome is a simple list poem, it can easily be differentiated for older learners. This would involve extending each line using e.g. adverbs or an additional clause. Children are encouraged to compose an opening line, closing line and' list' lines inbetween.

Rainforests Mind Movie StoryQuick View

Rainforests Mind Movie Story

A mind movie story adapted from an article about Juliane Koepecke, whose plane crashed into the Peruvian rainforest. This resource provides Key Stage 3 students with an excellent, engaging introduction to rainforests. It encourages them to write their own continuation of the story in which they use their senses and geographical imaginations to describe their surroundings. Particularly good when used with rainforest sound effects as students write!

I used this powerpoint (which contains pictures only) whilst playing a CD with sounds of the rainforest. We used this in my special school as stimulus for poetry work; the template is also included here. It could also be used for younger pupils and pupils with SEN to stimulate discussion. If you found this helpful, please leave a review. Thank you.

STEM - Biomimicry for Young Children - RainforestQuick View

STEM - Biomimicry for Young Children - Rainforest

The rainforest is home to the most stunning and fascinating plants and animals. Biomimicry is an exciting way to inspire young children to be creative, curious and to observe the world. The projects are intended to inspire a playful and creative approach towards problem solving. Children come to understand how animals and plants can be used as a platform upon which ideas and inventions can be developed. Biomimicry bridges the boundaries traditionally found in education and provides young children with an opportunity to mix art, literature and science with an innovative approach. This topic also provides an opportunity to bring the learning outdoors – observing, listening and smelling are vital factors to build a foundation upon which ideas inspired by nature can be explored. 1.
