Classroom Ideas

As an ignition lesson on the rainforests, students can watch the clip through once, to take in the sights and sounds and then on the second run through, they could write a list of words that come to mind as they watch and listen. Students could be told to stay strictly to one word at a time. This could then lead into a discussion about the sorts of words they came up with and an explanation of what made them choose their words.
