This website helps teachers and pupils to explore the interdependence of people and forests and the vital role forests play in sustaining our environment – in the past, the present and hopefully the future.
The Scots Pine forests in Scotland and the Congo Basin rainforest in Africa provide case studies through which pupils will begin to understand why our forests are under threat and the implications for our planet.
The website is divided into four sections, and has accompanying teachers’ notes:
- What is a forest?
- How do we use forests?
- What is happening to our forests?
- Forests of the future.
It is aimed at upper primary and lower secondary students (ages 7-14), and fits into English, Citizenship, social subjects and cross-curricular sustainable development education.
