Education in the UK

Rainforest Education Pack

The Rainforest Education Pack is a fantastic free resource for those teaching Key Stage I and II. Produced by a teacher, the pack provides lesson plans specifically designed to fit the National Curriculum and is relevant to many subject areas including English, Science, Geography, Art and Internet Research lessons. Orangutans are a fantastic example for teaching concepts such as adaptation, habitats, interdependence and conservation.
