Rainforest education for schools
World Land Trust (WLT) has produced a series of videos as part of a free teaching resource based on the current curriculum. The resources are aimed at Key Stage 1 and 2 students, covering a range of topics relating to rainforests and the conservation work of the Trust. We believe it is vital to inspire the next generation of conservationists and nurture their passion for the wild world.
These video resources are all created using footage from WLT-funded project areas. All videos are narrated by WLT Council member and children's author Nicola Davies.
Teaching pupils about animals in familiar and unfamiliar habitats, e.g. on the seashore, in woodland, in the ocean, in the rainforest. This segment highlights the many different habitats that World Land Trust helps to protect across the world.
This video describes the range of different species that occur in WLT projects and the effect that they can have on the ecosystem, with an emphasis on the importance of maintaining biodiversity and healthy habitats.
All living things
This video helps to explain food chains, identifying producers and consumers, predators and prey and differentiating between carnivores, herbivores and omnivores.
Further exploring the negative impacts that humans can have on the environment, going into detail about just how seriously deforestation affects our planet. World Land Trust helps to protect forests and the species that live there from illegal logging and development.
Different types of forests
World Land Trust helps to conserve many different types of forest across the world. This video combines geography with biology, helping to differentiate between different types of forest,where they can be found, and the types of animals you can spot there.
Much of World Land Trust's conservation work takes place in rainforests. This video goes into further detail about different kinds of rainforests, their key features, and the species found there. Look out for lots of interesting facts about rainforests and how they are similar and different to Britain's forests.
Explaining examples of human impact (both positive and negative) on environments, with a focus on the positive effects of nature reserves and tree planting, and the negative effects of deforestation.
