Also works as a stand alone lesson on the characteristics of tropical rainforests.

This lesson is from a scheme of work that I have written for my Year 8 groups, but it could be easily adapted for Year 7 or 9.
This lesson requires pupils to make use of the Wider World textbook in addition to the green Heinemann 'Understanding GCSE Geography for AQA Specification A' (Bowen and Palmister, 2009) text book.
