Active Geography at St. Patrick's RCVA Primary School (Rainforest Session)
The rainforest day takes a cross-curricular approach focussing on geography, science and DT. The session compares the Amazon Rainforest with deciduous woodlands in the UK and explores the geography and biodiversity of these two habitats. The survival element of the session involves a plan, design and review approach to shelter-building for a survival scenario. A list of resources available for shelter–building are sent to the school in advance to enable designs to be prepared and evaluations of the designs can be done following the day.
