Discover the Forest

What it is: Last week I wrote about an amazing interactive forest called UPM Forest Life.  I found a website today that would be a great site to couple with a UPM Forest Life virtual field trip.  Discover the Forest is a site that has fun games and activities for students to complete online and a great booklet to print out full of activities to complete outside.  After travelling through the UPM Virtual Forest, students can head over to the Discover the Forest website and  listen to animal sounds, create leaf rubbings, learn how to use a compass, and match animal tracks. How to integrate Discover the Forest into the classroom: Discover the Forest would be an excellent follow-up activity for a virtual field trip (or actual field trip) to a forest.  Students can complete the short online activities as part of a science learning center, or on individual student computers.  Encourage students to use the “Find a Forest or Park Near You” feature to find the nearest forest.  Students can plan a trip to the closest forest complete with a supply checklist, a map, and a checklist of wildlife to look for.  If you are fortunate enough to have a forest nearby, you can print out the “Book of Stuff to do Outside” for students to complete. Tips: This site has an excellent interactive to teach students how to use a compass, be sure to check it out!  Thank you to @larryferazzo for Tweeting about this fun site!

Simple sentences game contains grammatically incorrect sentences. Need to check carefully before putting learners on this site.
