Years 3-6


The amazing Amazon rainforest needs our help!

Take an imaginary class trip to the jungle to study its unique environment, important weather patterns and environmental challenges.

In this lesson, written by Kate Snowdon from National Geographic Kids, children will have a chance to prepare for their jungle trek by learning about the conditions that await them as they discover why the Amazon is so important – and why it needs protecting.

Download free resources to help children undertake research, then consolidate findings by creating campaign posters that highlight the importance of protecting the rainforest.

Pupils will:

  • Understand key aspects of climate zones
  • Explore connections between rainforests and the water cycle
  • Identify similarities and differences with South America in terms of physical geography
  • Evaluate the importance of the rainforest and the threats it faces
