As a long-term science sub, I was given the science club, also. It was
composed of two kids from each class (3-5th), that their teachers chose,
and met during lunch twice a week. We made a rain forest in the huge
science lab. First I had kids twist brown butcher paper into tree trunks
and branches from one corner of the room. They were suspended from the the
lights by string. Then I had them make leaves in several varieties and
attach them. Then we traced animals, birds, amphibians, and insects of the
rain forest and they had to cut them out and color them in. It looked
Great. I have also seen teachers make undersea themes. I once walked into
the science lab at another school and there was kelp hanging all over the
room. It was fabulous. So, something like that might work. Linda in NM.
