One of the interesting animals from the rainforests of South and Central America is the quetzal. We learned more about this bird by reading the information from the quetzal page on the Enchanted Learning website. In one of the activities we did, we had to read a question, then highlight the answer in the text. This helped us to search for information in what we read. Here are some facts we learned about quetzals:
~They were sacred to the Mayans.
~They can be found on the money from Guatemala.
~ They make their nests in rotting trees.
We then got to do an art project to create quetzals. After we looked at pictures and a short video of quetzals, we created a unique pattern to the coloring of the quetzal. In this picture, you can see some of our completed projects:
We were wondering...
Have you heard of quetzals before?
