Education Pack

Making it easier for you to teach your class about the rainforests and their destruction

We are always delighted to hear from teachers and students that are covering rainforests at school and would like more information.

To help answer some of the questions we receive we produced a school booklet and teachers guide designed with the KS2 National Curriculum in mind.

The pack will teach children all about the people, animals and plants that live in the rainforest and threats which they are facing. It is full of pictures and "Thinking Points" to encourage pupils to initiate discussion along with lesson ideas and activities in the teacher’s guide.
