Spend Saturday at Chicago Botanic Garden and Sunday at the Brookfield Zoo and learn about rainforests worldwide---why they’re important, why some are disappearing, and why we want to protect them. Join educators at the Chicago Botanic Gardens in the warm, steamy greenhouses to explore rainforest plants and their adaptations. At Brookfield Zoo, seek out animals of the rainforest in our cozy rainforest exhibits, and learn about their adaptations for survival. At both places, learn hands-on art and science activities for use in the classroom. Teachers will explore rainforests through classroom activities that relate to language arts, math, science, social studies and fine arts. Topics of study will include rainforest plants and animals, adaptations, conservation issues, ecology and cultural topics. Please bring a sack lunch each day of the workshop. Upon registration, maps & driving directions will be e-mailed to participants.
Sat., 12/7, 8:30 AM—4:30 PM at Chicago Botanic Gardens
Sun., 12/8, 11:00 AM—4:30 PM at Brookfield Zoo
