This ecology-based kit provides a unique look at a popular subject. Lynne Cherry’s The Great Kapok Tree provides an emotional connection to this unique environment. Children explore artists’ perspectives on the rainforest by investigating the work of such artists as Henri Rousseau, Martin Johnson Heade, Frederick Edwin Church, and Frank Stella. Simple objects such as artificial fern leaves offer multi-sensory experiences that make the rainforest environment come alive for children. Lesson plans are included with language, science, music, and motor activities as well as extensive art enrichment activities.
