This lesson is part of a series of lessons about the rainforest ecosystem and is available as part of a bundle. This lesson starts by recalling some of the threats to the rainforest. It then introduces the idea of shifting cultivation and how it is sustainable. Next there are a series of photos of reasons for deforestation e.g. logging, mining, ranching, faming. Students are asked to consider why this is not sustainable and why it would be difficult to regrow the forest. They are then introduced to 4 schemes designed to manage the rainforest the Surui-Google partnership, REDD+, Ecotourism and sustainable agroforestry. In a group of four the students are given the information about one of the projects to simplify the project into a mind map. The groups can then give a speech presenting their findings to each other. Next they are asked to complete gap fill paragraphs explaining each project. Finally, students should work as a group to consider the relative strengths and weaknesses of the projects and evaluate which is most successful. All resources are included at the end of the PowerPoint.
