Temperate Rainforest in the Pacific Northwest (Age 7-11)
Produced by ARKive, these materials include a series of activities that introduce children to the plants and animals of the temperate rainforest in the Pacific Northwest (USA).
Children conduct a hands-on investigation of the living things in a small local ecosystem, catalogue their findings and then compare their findings to that of the temperate rainforest. The comparison provides children with an appreciation for the uniqueness and biodiversity of the temperate rainforest. They are able to understand that this ecosystem is the home for a range of endangered species whose survival will depend on keeping this habitat intact.
In the final activities, children document their new understanding and become advocates for protecting ‘hotspot habitats’ to demonstrate how everybody can contribute to their survival.
The materials contain teacher guidance, a presentation and activity sheets.
