Description

In this lesson, from PBS' "Journey into Amazonia," students identify products made with materials that originate in the world's rainforests. After identifying rainforest products they have used, students choose which five products are the most important to them. Students research to evaluate whether or not their products have been harvested in a sustainable manner from the Amazon.
