Rainforest Science Make A Fun Living Terrarium

From the blogger: "Are you learning all about the beautiful and fascinating rainforest habitat? You can have your child make a diorama the old-fashioned way or try something new and end up with a beautiful living decor piece. This living rainforest diorama terrarium can be a great hands-on way to teach your child about the animals and plants of the rainforest and a lesson on self-sustaining environments. This mini ecosystem becomes a self-sustaining environment with living plants once the lid is closed. Add this idea to your rainforest science activities for the day. "
