During this course we will find out about the geography and history of rainforests and the lives of the people who live in them. We will use maps, stories, pictures and drama activities to help us understand how important the rainforests are to planet earth.

You will have the chance to use your geography skills to investigate maps of The Amazon; your sensory and descriptive skills will be needed as we travel through video and drama to the world of the rainforest; you will take part in an hour long deforestation simulation game where your teamwork and negotiation skills will be tested to their limits!

This course is designed to help you present your ideas clearly, work as part of a team and to develop your confidence in discussing important issues such as sustainability, trade, fairness and global citizenship. It is perfect for pupils who have previously enjoyed the "Food Glorious Food" and "Chocolate" workshops.
