Apply literacy skills as students work to save a tropical Amazon rainforest reserve, tackling ELA and social studies standards along the way.
As they take on meaningful roles as biologists, environmentalists, and game wardens, students expand social studies content knowledge, develop long-lasting civic values, and form an understanding of our ecosystem.
The threat of deforestation prompts students to petition to stop the sale of their rainforest in the unit’s critical incident, which is designed to strengthen speaking, listening, and collaborative decision-making skills.
