1st Grader Imagine, Plan and Create Rainforest Dioramas

As part of a unit on habitats, our 1st grade students made dioramas. Some might say that this isn't "making"... I would disagree.

After learning about the different levels of a rainforest, each class came into the Lab for a design process lesson. We talked about ways to create different parts of the rainforest, how to attach items in the diorama and learned about the materials they would be using. Then it was off to work. Each group come up with individual ideas for their level, then the groups came together and decided on one plan. Next they began creating it, making changes or making improvements as needed. Finally, the multi-tier dioramas were complete. The next step in their study, will be to create a creature that will live in one of the levels of the rainforest.
