Identifying tropical rainforest animals

This lesson is part of Tropical Rainforests, a Geography unit designed for students in KS2, but can also be taught as a stand alone lesson. All resources are compatible with both Microsoft Office and Google Workspace.

First, the presentation introduces students to some of the animals which live in tropical rainforests around the world. Many of these are endangered species so the concepts of extinction and conservation are also covered.

The group activity then challenges students to match photos of rainforest animals to their names and fact files.

Finally, students learn about a conservation success story – the mountain gorillas of the Congo River Rainforest.
