Students review the Amazon river, its surrounding lands, plants, mammals, insects, climate, and more, with this activity. To complete this activity, students either must have already studied the Amazon or must have access to research materials. There are 14 questions to answer and 2 graphic organizers to complete. One graphic organizer asks students to compare 6 items between 2 indigenous tribes the students "encounter" and one group of people they "encounter" who interact with the Western world. The other asks students to compare the exploration of the Amazon in 3 different historical periods. Answers are not included because every question is dependent on the students' creativity and what they learned in class.
Sample questions include:
--You take note of 3 unique mammals. State their names and describe them to people who will never get to see them in real life.
--What did you expect to experience during your exploration that didn’t happen?
--What were you most surprised by and why?
--Describe 2 challenges you encountered while traveling and how you dealt with them.
-- If you could offer future Amazon explorers 3 tips for a successful venture, what would they be and why?
