Bringing the Amazon Rainforest to the Classroom

April 22, 2022 - -

Film: River of Gold (Watch trailer here)

Watershed: Amazon River basin

Presented in partnership with the Amazon Aid Foundation

In honor of Earth Day, Green Teacher & Amazon Aid Foundation are bringing the wonder of the rainforest to the classroom. In this special series, we will unite art and science in engaging sessions that aim to educate students about the Amazon rainforest and its impact on the global environment.

Amazon Aid and their extraordinary community of experts will stimulate young minds in a series of interdisciplinary lessons that develop a rich understanding of the Amazon rainforest while supporting various learning styles, promoting literacy, and fostering critical thinking skills. Lesson plans support existing mandated curricular requirements, providing teachers with an innovative approach to fulfill their districts’ standards-based goals.

The Amazon rainforest is approaching a tipping point, beyond which it will lose the ability to sustain itself. To save it, we need all hands on deck. We hope you will join us for this unique opportunity to learn about the wonders of the Amazon and the solutions needed to protect it.

Attendees will have free access to Amazon Aid’s award-winning documentary film River of Gold along with a diverse suite of standards-aligned lesson plans that complement the film and are built to engage students in learning and problem solving, from the rainforest to their own backyard.
