students will need to use their own background knowledge to  draw conclusions or infere what the climate is in the Rain Forest.  Students were using pictures, sounds, poems, travel brochures in order to determine what the climate could be in the Rain Forest.  Students shared out from their individual group findings to see a bigger picture and synthesize new information about the  rain forest climate.

It was a great way to use knowledge based compentencies in other contents.

What an exciting lesson; I wish I was a student in this class.

Students love using their observation skills to act like little detectives. I can think of many ways to transfer this style of lesson to other topics or content areas.

Thanks for the inspiration!

Paul: Is the teacher supposed to let the student come away with thinking that the rainforest is dry and cool?

One girl said that the rainforest was "cool and dry," and the teacher said "very good," or some such gibberish. Am I the only one who caught this glaring mistake?

Great way to use differentiation instruction with students in learning about other parts of the world. Will be using this with my Social Studies students.
