The Future of the Amazon Conference

This The Future of the Amazon Conference lesson plan also includes:

Debate is a wonderful way to get kids interested in building strong arguments, answering with evidence and intent, as well as fostering an understanding of a specific topic. Learners are given the task of debating the future of the Amazon Rainforest as each group portrays a different special interest group who commonly attends the Amazon Conference held in Brazil. They research their perspective, state their arguments, and construct strong evidence based rebuttals. After the debate, the class discusses their personal opinions, ideas, and alternative solutions to rainforest use.
