Year One launched into their topic this week with a fantastic day full of lots of fun activities. Students entered dark classrooms with lovely rainforests sounds to begin their day.
Throughout the day, children worked through four rainforest challenges in teams. First they had to investigate the Amazon Rainforest and learn as many facts as they could. They then chose animals to imitate all day. After that they participated in some animal movement activities. The children enjoyed some rainforest themed cosmic kids yoga and some rainforest dancing. To finish the day the children participated in the annual Bush Tucker Challenge where they had to eat dried ants, snake eggs and bat wings.
During the day the children also completed many fun craft activities. They made scary lions, exotic parrots and slithering snakes!
