Locating tropical rainforests on a world map

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.

The presentation introduces students to tropical rainforests, including some of the flora and fauna that live in them. Students then learn about the Earth’s tropical belt and the location of the various rainforests within it.

The activity challenges students to label features of a world map including the Equator, the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn. Students then locate 8 of the world’s tropical rainforests.

Easier – Students use a prompt map and have activity clues.
Harder – Students use a prompt map but have no activity clues.

Extension – Students fill in the missing words in a paragraph about tropical rainforests.
