Barnes Butte Elementary students learn about tropical rain forests
The 3rd grade students at Barnes Butte Elementary have been learning about tropical rain forests by taking a canoe trip through Roberto’s Rain forest (a simulation of a canoe trip down a river to explore a tropical rain forest). They have learned about the different layers in the rain forest and which plants, insects, birds and animals live in each layer. It has been an exciting few weeks. We performed a musical, “Rumpus in the Rain forest,” for the 2nd grade classes and our parents at our culmination.
