Rainforest-themed lesson plans

Are you a teacher? We offer rainforest-themed lesson plans for K-12 covering topics such as the global benefits of tropical ecosystems, biodiversity and the connection between rainforest and climate change.

Curricula include language arts, science, math and social studies that are consistent with the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).

We invite you to use these free lessons to educate your students about the importance of rainforest ecosystems and the urgent need to protect them.
