The rainforest lesson is appropriate for a fourth grade level and can be covered in every subject. A social studies lesson could cover the geographic locations of the rainforsts, a lauguage arts lesson could be writing a paper on the rainforest, and a math lesson could be on calculating all the different species and predicting when they will become extinct.
