We teamed up with our friends at Nickelodeon and Rainforest Alliance to create a fun and interactive Rainforest Animal Flipbook. This flipbook showcases the different levels of the rainforest and (best of all!) the interesting animals that live there. 

Teaching about the rainforest always turns out to be one of the highlights of the school year. Students are especially fascinated by learning about all of the interesting animals, plants and ecosystems.

Students will love creating, customizing and exploring through their very own flipbook. Each page represents a layer of the rainforest (emergent layer, canopy layer, understory layer, and forest floor) and features interesting tidbits about the animals and plants native to each habitat. 

What’s Inside?

In addition to the flipbook (which doubles as a coloring book!), the download includes a teacher guide as well as a student activity pack with engaging worksheets. These extended lessons will help students dig even deeper learning about the rainforest.

Watch students’ eyes get wide when they learn fun facts such as; The Goliath Birdeater Tarantula is the size of a dinner plate with its legs spread out? 😲 And yes… it earned its name because it’s so big that it can eat birds. (Cue the classroom gasp!)

Yes, I Want The Rainforest Flipbook!
