Let's Be an Explorer!
Let's imagine that we are great explorers and we are leaving camp to go on our adventurous expedition. Before we leave our campsite we are checking our backpack to make sure that we packed snacks that were specifically grown in the rainforest. We finally leave our camp in the Amazon Rainforest. On our journey we will take photos of animals that we may see on the trip. Not only will we take photos, but we will take photos of the animals in the section of the rainforest that they live in. The Strata-Musesum of Minnesota will help to decide in what part of the rainforest the animals live.
