Chelsey Weiss's WDC fourth-grade class read the story "The Great Kapok Tree" and learned about the Amazon Rain Forest. They made a rainforest in their classroom to resemble it with animals, trees, and plants that they learned about. Learning about the rainforest has helped them realize how important it is and the need to help save it. Here, Kennedy Gravelle poses with her teacher, Chelsey Weiss.
