Our Planet: Forests and Jungles - KS2 & KS3 Activity Set

(0)
Today, 300 million people still live in forests and over one billion people depend on them for their livelihood. Forests cover almost one third of our planet’s land area and well over half of the species found on land live in forests. This activity set includes a classroom presentation, a discussion guide, and activity ideas on rainforests for Key Stage 2 students. Some of these resources were created by WWF alongside the Our Planet series, now streaming on Netflix. The series shows the awesome splendour of the natural wonders that we risk losing, but also carries a message of hope: we can still save our planet if we act now. Your class does not need to have watched the series to be able to use the resources. Additional, free to use, video content about jungles is available on the Our Planet website. Teachers can access WWF’s full range of FREE classroom resources and activities by visiting wwf.org.uk/schools.

The Our Planet LAB toolkit outlines the steps that a class or group can take to monitor, study and improve local biodiversity. There are a wealth of digital and offline tools and techniques available to support this activity, and your choice of approach will depend on your local context, the needs and preferences of the young people taking part, and your plans for publicly showcasing your project locally or globally. Our Planet LAB features the Seek app. The Seek app was created by iNaturalist in partnership with WWF, and launched as part of the suite of Our Planet resources for young people. Seek provides a fun and accessible way for young people to unlock the secrets of the natural world around them, identifying flora, fauna and fungi and discovering how the biodiversity of their local ecosystem fits in the big picture of nature on our planet. Live image recognition allows users to scan wildlife and identify it in real time, which helps young people to improve not only their knowledge of nature but their skills in obtaining an accurate visual record of wildlife observations.
