Journey Into Amazonia is a three-part wildlife series from PBS that "offers an enchanting look at rarely-seen creatures" in the region. This Web site offers educational materials "designed for upper elementary, middle, or high school students (grades 5-10) although extension suggestions may help you modify them for younger or older students." In addition to providing background information about the Amazon basin, this site contains lessons plans that incorporate "video clips from the Journey into Amazonia documentary, though the lessons also function as stand-alone activities." The lesson plans include procedures, links, assessment recommendations, and more. The site also includes suggestions for getting involved in Amazon rainforest conservation.
