This activity is a reading about the Layers of the Tropical Rainforest. It comes with a Power Point that goes along with the readings with original photographs that make the concepts real.
The reading comes in 3 versions. One is the a traditional style reading with questions at the end. The second is with the questions embedded in the reading. The third is a modified version for those below grade level.
There are directions, discussion ideas and alternative activities included.
The files are pptx and docx.
Please be aware that ½ of the profit will be going to a teacher-run organization called Save The Rainforest, Inc. to help preserve and educate about rainforests. Specifically, this money will be earmarked for a project called Green Rainforest in Panama. A group of dedicated researchers and naturalists are establishing a jaguar reserve to protect the migration corridor of their largest predator. Your purchase will actually be protecting rainforests and jaguars along with the biodiversity found in that area!
Also, there are other great Beedle’s Beyond lessons on the rainforest that will fit in nicely with this lesson.
