EXPLORING THE TROPICAL RAINFOREST

 

INFO

Educational program with film

With support from Danida and in co-operation with The Copenhagen Zoo we have developed and produced a lesson plan with supporting films aimed ad the primary and lower secondary level. 

In the films we visit the tropical rainforest and our Danish guide from the Copenhagen Zoo teaches us about the flora & fauna of the rainforest, sustainability and the threats of the palm oil production, and we meet the indigenous people who lives in and on the rainforest. 

The primary goal of the project is to increase the students’ knowledge of the rainforest and the ecology of the rainforest. The films can be used in the national science curriculum, Physics/Chemistry, Biology and Geography, to explore themes such as sustainability, social issues, climate, human impact on nature and nature management.
