Block G - Saving the Rainforest

This engaging topic will introduce children to rainforests around the world. They will learn what they are, where they are, what they contain and who lives there! Along the way they will develop their skills by creating reports, creating their own rainforests, and becoming David Attenborough!

Learn how to save the rainforests! Investigate the link between deforestation and climate change. Create a climate change information video to raise awareness. Begin to take action and make insect animal homes, bird feeders and plant your own mini forests and gardens. Promote awareness of this important issue.

This Topic is written for Lower Key Stage 2. If you want to use this Topic for a different Key Stage, you will need to consider how to adapt the outcomes, content, delivery methods, resources and differentiation, as well as the relevant National Curriculum objectives.
