Not Your Average Rain Forest Diorama!

2nd Graders were reading about the Rain Forest, so in STEAM they made a model of a Rain Forest.  Each group made a different layer of the Rain Forest and then we taped our boxes together.  We also had students make pipe cleaner animals.  We connected our animals to a Makey Makey, and learned how to program them in Scratch!  When our Makey Makey is attached to our animals, we can touch them and they make their animal noise!  We learned a lot about the Rain Forest and circuitry in this unit!
