School Workshop: Jungle Connections

Students are challenged to explore their connections with the rainforests of the world by exploring Eden’s own jungle, in this workshop for years 7-9.

 

Workshop overview

What happens in the workshop

The challenge starts with a review of students’ knowledge of rainforests and a hands-on activity to stimulate thinking about our connections to the rainforest and some of the associated issues. Students spend up to an hour in the Rainforest Biome, experiencing the reality of the tropical climate and finding further examples of their rainforest connections.

On returning to the classroom we take the story of chocolate as an example for analysing trade relationships in more detail and investigating our power as consumers to make a difference.
