Rainforest Adaptations

Rainforest Adaptations
KS3: ages 11-14KS4: ages 14-16WebsitePDFFilm

The Eden Project has created this 1.5-hour science lesson challenging secondary students (ages 11-16) to think more creatively about plants’ evolutionary adaptation.

The rainforest is one of the most extreme and challenging ecosystems on the planet. Yet plants have evolved adaptations which enable them not only to overcome the challenges, but to thrive here! This lesson challenges students to think more deeply and creatively about challenges that organisms face in their habitats and their adaptations – moving them far beyond the standard fare of polar bears, rabbits and foxes.

It includes a short video demonstrating the amazing ways that plants adapt to living in the rainforest.
