The Princes’ Rainforest Project has recognised that “the education sector has a vital role to play in raising awareness about the importance of rainforests in stopping climate change.” To support schools in this role, The Prince’s Rainforests Project (PRP) has created a Schools website.
Aimed at children, parents and teachers of children aged 3 to 16, the website includes a range of free resources such as lesson ideas, assembly ideas, fun games and activities, competitions and short videos. There is an Awards scheme that classes can work through by completing rainforest lessons and projects, and an area where schools and teachers from around the world can share new ideas for lesson ideas and showcase their students’ work.
The lesson ideas are designed to be compatible with the UK national curriculum. In collaboration with the Rainforest Alliance, they also provide resources and links specific to the US curriculum.
The website offers a variety of resources for kids including competitions, fact sheets, video and audio clips and awards. In the teachers sections there are lesson plans, assembly ideas, games, links and class multi-media kits.
