Friday 5th June is World Environment Day

We have a new HOME LEARNING ACTIVITY to link to this… 

It is called ‘Guardians of the Rainforest!’

‘Guardians of the Rainforest’  is about the cocoa farmers who are working together to protect the Gola Rainforest in Sierra Leone, West Africa. The story is told by 14-year-old Beshey, whose family have been cocoa farmers for generations.

After watching ‘Guardians of the Rainforest‘, have a go at the activities on the Home Learning Challenge sheet.

Here are our favourite two activities this week…

  1. Create a poster for forest-friendly chocolate

Tasty, organic and forest-friendly! What more could you want in a chocolate bar?! Your challenge is to create a poster to advertise forest-friendly chocolate. Use eye-catching pictures and make sure your text stands out! Watch the full version of the film for inspiration.

  1. Design a forest-friendly animal deterrent for Grandmother Amie

Grandmother Amie scares chimpanzees away from the farm with a drum. This does’t harm the animals but it does stop them from eating her crop. Can you design another forest-friendly way to stop animals from eating her cocoa?
