I used this powerpoint (which contains pictures only) whilst playing a CD with sounds of the rainforest. We used this in my special school as stimulus for poetry work; the template is also included here. It could also be used for younger pupils and pupils with SEN to stimulate discussion. If you found this helpful, please leave a review. Thank you.

Rainforest PoetryQuick View

Rainforest Poetry

'Who lives here?' PowerPoint introduces a 'conversation' poem about the creatures and habitat of the rainforest. It provides a structured step by step lesson to support composition. It also allows reinforcement of parts of speech particularly verbs and prepositions. Extended poetry task also provided for variety and possible differentiation. Several verse examples are provided for clarity. Rainforest booklet is provided for children to write their final draft for display or poetry portfolio. 'Rainforest List Poem' PowerPoint continues with a poetic theme and uses a simple format to motivate composition. This clear, concise and colourful presentation leads the learners step by step through the composition of a list poem based on a 'rainforest' theme. There is a grammar element throughout with an emphasis on nouns, adjectives and 'ing' verbs. I have found a poetry context an effective way to embed incidental grammar teaching. Although the outcome is a simple list poem, it can easily be differentiated for older learners. This would involve extending each line using e.g. adverbs or an additional clause. Children are encouraged to compose an opening line, closing line and' list' lines inbetween.

Rainforest Animal Adaptations LessonQuick View

Rainforest Animal Adaptations Lesson

This lesson teaches students about the wide range of plant and animal adaptations that exist within rainforests. A wide range of examples are covered with specific detailed information on each one. There is a heavy emphasis on peer and self assessment throughout the lesson. The lesson can be split into two halves, with the first half focusing on plant adaptations and the second half focusing on animal adaptations. I used this with a wide range of abilities in year 8.
