Let's Take A Class Trip to the Rainforest! Is based off an actual lesson taught to students from an award winning interdisciplinary curriculum about tropical rainforests.
This activity allows students to imagine that they are going on a week-long field trip to a rainforest. They need to cooperatively brainstorm what they would need to pack for this trip considering the special geographic conditions of a rainforest and then evaluate their choices.
The activity is described with Directions, potential follow-up Discussion questions, and a real packing list to compare from recommendations of student groups actually taking trips to discover the rainforest.
