9. The Tropics (cc)

09. The Tropics (cc)

The island habitats near the equator and in Central and South America have unique and colorful animals and plants. Projects include: Leis - A traditional sign of welcome made from the blooms of various island flowers, your tropical lei will never wilt when it is constructed of paper and beads. Frogs and Footprints - About 4/5ths of all of the frog and toad species live in sub-tropical rainforests. They have many special characteristics. Here you choose a special trait to give your frog as you paint it on a shirt. Peacock - One of the most beautiful birds in the world, peacocks are actually native to India and Ceylon, but have been introduced to most corners of the world. The male has the beautiful blue feathers and here we use oil pastels to paint them. Milk Jug Mask - A mask is an important part of a tropical ceremony, and ours is even more useful since we use a recycled milk jug as its base. Fuzzy Parrot - There are over 300 species of parrots. Here we make a scarlet macaw of chenille and Styrofoam. Hands-On Project 409 - Kids helping other kids through their crafts. 04/08DE/CC Closed-Captioned PI 30 min.
