Exploring the Rainforest–Tree frogs and Monkeys

BACKGROUND

Tree frogs live in rain forests around the world where they rely on the forest's humidity and large amounts of rainfall to keep them hydrated. Tree frogs rely on expanded circular disks under their toes that help them climb trees and vegetation. They catch beetles, flies, spiders, ants, moths, flies, grasshoppers and other insects with their long, sticky tongues.


There are so many species of monkeys in the Amazon rain forest that scientist have not yet discovered all of them.
One thing most monkeys in the rainforest have in common is a prehensile tail. “New World” monkeys use their long prehensile tails as a fifth arm or leg to wrap around tree branches. The “Old World” monkeys of the African and Asian rain forests lack this handy adaptation.

The diet of Amazon rainforest monkeys consists of fruit, nuts, leaves, insects, bird’s eggs—and sometimes the birds themselves.


WHAT TO DO

Tree frog Craft

  1. Give each youth one half of a paper plate, a piece of pink and black construction paper, a paint sponge, and their own glue and pair of scissors

  2. Cut out two large pink eyes and glue them onto the top part of the cut paper plate.

  3. Cut out 2 pupils from the black construction paper to glue onto the pink eyes.

  4. Each youth will then use a sponge to paint their paper plate green. (This will represent the frog’s face.)

  5. Cut a strip of pink construction paper (about an inch thick) 6 inches long.

  6. Slowly roll the pink strip to about half way. (This will represent the frog’s tongue.)

  7. Glue the straight end of the pink tongue onto the front of the paper plate.


Monkey Craft

  1. Cut out and color the front and back of your monkey.

  2. Each youth will sandwich the pipe cleaners between the front and the back of the body. Glue the pipe cleaners in an “X” on the back of the body.

  3. Glue the top of the body over top of the pipe cleaners.

  4. Turn the monkey around and glue a smaller piece of pipe cleaner on the bottom to make the tail.

  5. Once the glue is dry, each youth can bend and shape their monkey’s pipe cleaners into arms, legs, and a tail.

Exploring the Rainforest-Tree Frogs and Monkeys


TALK IT OVER


  • Where can you find frogs in the rainforest?

    • You can find them living up in the trees. They live in the trees for protection from other predators.

  • What kinds of things do tree frogs eat?

    • Beetles, flies, grasshoppers, ants, moths, etc.

  • What types of monkeys live in the rain forest?

    • tamarins, howler monkeys, spider monkeys, capuchin monkeys, squirrel monkeys and marmosets.

HELPFUL HINTS

  1. Depending on the age group, pre-cutting the plates and strips of pink paper for the tongue might be helpful.

  2. You can make the frogs into masks by punching a hole on each side and adding elastic

  3. Frogger is a fun game to play. All the students sit in a circle and you pick one student to be the "detective" to sit in the middle of the circle. The detective closes their eyes and the teacher secretly picks someone in the circle to be the "frogger". The rest of the students are flies. Have the detective leave their eyes closed, and have the frog raise their hand so that all the other students know who the frogger is. Once the frogger’s hand is down, invite the detective to open his/her eyes by saying, "Detective Joseph, please open your eyes and tell me who the frogger is." The frogger would secretly make eye contact with a student sitting in the circle and stick their tongue out at that student, in which that student would lay down - as to show a "dead fly". The frogger continues to try to get as many flies as possible before the detective figures out who is killing all the flies. The detective has to try to catch the frog sticking out their tongue at the other flies. Give the detective 3 chances to guess. When the frogger is revealed he/she would then be the detective and so on. If all of the flies were down before the detective determined the frog then the detective "loses" but the game can still continue playing with a different detective.

  4. Having one pre-made will help the children better understand what to do.

  5. A fun game to play- Monkey in the middle
