INTRODUCTION TO THE MOST BEAUTIFUL ROOF IN THE WORLD: WHY DOES MEG LOWMAN RESEARCH THE RAINFOREST? (PAGES 2-4)
This lesson opens with a quick activity about Meg Lowman and her research. This activity is intended to build students’ background knowledge, but more importantly to pique their curiosity. Do not worry if their knowledge about Meg Lowman is quite limited during the initial KWL charting. They revisit the KWL many times throughout the unit, and rely on their KWL notes during their end of unit assessment.
