Amazon Rain Forest Theme Gross Motor With Afternoon in the Amazon

I love that each of the Magic Tree House Books has so many great themes to learn about. Today’s book is about the Amazon Rain Forest. It has so many great animals to learn about.

We love this series because it teaches us about so many different themes. Today’s book is full of rain forest animals and we wanted to have fun with some gross motor movements for some of the animals.

The Afternoon on the Amazon (Magic Tree House, No. 6) has so many great animals in it. We loved reading about them and decided that we would do some gross motor for the animals.

I made the cards ahead of time and we read the book and when we got the cards we did the gross motor.
