A collaboration of lessons created non specialists teaching Geography in my department for the Rainforests topic. All resources included. Each lesson has the same structure; connect, activate, demonstrate, consolidate tasks. Learning objectives included for each lesson. I have included a large range of resources e.g. rainforest explorer task, design a rainforest plant, mysteries, market place tasks, desk mats, mapping tasks, videos, case study sheets, mind maps, research tasks, graphs, card sorts and lots more. I have also included practise exam questions to go with each lesson. Each lesson is 120 minutes.
The lessons are as follows:
Lesson 1 - The location and climate of the tropical rainforests
Lesson 2 - The plants and animals of the rainforests
Lesson 3 - Animal and plant adaptations
Lessons 4 and 5 - Deforestation in Malaysia case study
Lesson 6 - Managing tropical rainforests
