At Home in the Rainforest


At Home in the Rainforest
Each animal was cut from a single color of felt, using online clip art patterns, and then painted with fabric paints

Teacher Toucan:  At school today, we will talk about the rainforest.  Who knows what animals do in the rainforest?

Monkey:  Monkeys like to swing from trees.

Teacher Toucan:  Great!  Monkeys swing around.  That’s all animals do in the rainforest.  School’s over.  It’s time to go home.

Jaguar:  Wait!  That’s not all animals do in the rainforest!  We love to swim and play in the streams.  We even eat the fish, when we can catch them.

Teacher Toucan:  Great!  Monkeys swing and jaguars swim.  That’s all animals do in the rainforest.  School’s over.  It’s time to go home.

Morpho Butterfly:  Wait!  That’s not all animals do in the rainforest!  We like to drink sap and fruit juice, when we’re not flying around.

Teacher Toucan:  Great!  Monkeys swing, jaguars swim and butterflies drink sap.  That’s all animals do in the rainforest.  School’s over.  It’s time to go home.

Sloth:  Wait!  That’s not all animals do in the rainforest!  We like to eat the leaves that other animals do not like. 

Teacher Toucan:  Great!  Monkeys swing, jaguars swim, butterflies drink sap, and sloths eat leaves.  That’s all animals do in the rainforest.  School’s over.  It’s time to go home.

Poison Dart Frog:  Wait!  That’s not all animals do in the rainforest!  We lay our eggs in the water trapped inside flowers, where they are safe from animals who want to eat them.

Teacher Toucan:  Great!  Monkeys swing, jaguars swim, butterflies drink sap, sloths eat leaves and frogs lay eggs.  That’s all animals do in the rainforest.  School’s over.  It’s time to go home.

Monkey:  Teacher Toucan, what do you do in the rainforest?

Teacher Toucan:  Oh!  I forgot!  Toucans live in rainforests, too!   We sit high in the branches and look for food.  School’s over.  Time to go to my home.  I want you to see my great rainforest home!

At Home in a Tree


At Home in a Tree


Found online clip art patterns.  Used different layers of felt to assemble these.
Teacher Owl:  At school today, we will talk about trees. Who knows what trees are good for?

Robin:  Trees are great for birds to build nests in.

Teacher Owl:  Okay.  Trees are good for robins.  That’s all trees are good for.  School’s over.  It’s time to go home.

Caterpillar:  Wait!  Trees are good for more than that!  Trees are great for insects to live in, too.  And their leaves are tasty treats to eat!

Teacher Owl:  Okay.  Trees are good for robins and insects.  That’s all trees are good for.  School’s over.  It’s time to go home.

Squirrel:  Wait!  Trees are good for more than that!  Trees are great for storing our food.

Teacher Owl:  Okay.  Trees are good for robins, insects and squirrels.  That’s all trees are good for.  School’s over.  It’s time to go home.

Cow:  Wait!  Trees are good for more than that!  On hot summer days, trees are good to sit under.  Trees help cows stay cool!

Teacher Owl:  Okay.  Trees are good for robins, insects, squirrels and cows.  That’s all trees are good for.  School’s over.  It’s time to go home.

Robin:  Teacher Owl, where is your home?

Teacher Owl:  Oh!  I forgot!  Trees are a great place for owls, too!   We sit high in the branches and look for food.  School’s over.  Time to go to my home.  I want you to see my great tree home!
