Are you looking for
a way to add interest to your Rainforest unit? Do you want to add
more activities to your learning stations? Are you searching for a
project which integrates learning and technology? Download my
Rainforest Animal Trading Cards package!
Included is a set of 54 trading cards highlighting birds, reptiles,
insects, primates and other mammals of the rainforest. These trading
cards can be printed on card stock, laminated, and trimmed to
produce a set of playing cards. The deck is divided into four suits
of thirteen with two jokers, allowing students to learn while
playing any standard card game. Also included are the documents
"Educational Trading Card Games" and "Creating Educational Trading
Cards". The first document contains three original study games for
classes and small groups. The second document gives teachers and
students the step by step instructions required to create their own
cards using a free online resource.
Love them! Great addition to our
rainforest unit. Thanks!
Great quality color
pictures when printed on card stock. My students love the
information on the cards and the games they can play with them.
This is a great product and very attractive. I've
shared with our computer teacher where to find your materials and I
plan to purchase more from you in the future.
Conservation Central (Online Activity)
Take a walk in this
virtual Virginia forest and do field research using the same
scientific methodologies and tools that Smithsonian scientists use
to monitor forest biodiversity!
Bingo: Rainforest Animals
“Fact-Filled Bingo” is a computer program sure to
bring excitement to your Rainforest Animal unit. Instead of numbers,
the talking robot calls out random rainforest inhabitants complete
with pictures and interesting facts. Forty bingo cards suitable for
laminating are provided. Also included is the computer program
“Fact-Filled Slideshow”. Hook up your classroom PC/Mac to a
SmartBoard or projector to highlight 48 different rainforest
animals. Again the talking robot does the narrating. Ideal for
projects where students select an animal to research. Both programs
use text-to-speech technology to make the robot speak. As a bonus
I’ve included the manual “Text-to-Speech” which teaches you how to
make your PowerPoint presentations talk. A free online utility
accepts your text and coverts it to a sound file, which in turn can
be imported into slides. Ideal for the computer lab!

6th grade class! Great looking product!
