Orr setting up maybe putting out for the kids examples of the items from the rain forest, even allowing them to taste and eat them-
Jennifer Kaszuba
01:49:57
I have students who immigrated from Peru and Ecuador, I wonder if the parents would come talk to the class

My AP EnvSci students learn about ingredients vs. nutrition info. and key terms like the use of "organic" and "natural ingredients" on food labels. Then small groups are tasked with researching items in a section of the grocery store and reporting back. You could tweak this into a K-8 grocery store "ingredient scavenger hunt"
Keller, Renata
01:53:14
Which countries are part of the amazon? Peru, Brazil…..
Christopher Duvall
01:53:30
Hi Dr. Pearson, what are your suggestions for a student who wants to pursue a career in finding cures for diseases, etc. from rainforest organisms/oral traditions?
Jennifer Kaszuba
01:55:01
Do you have a list of the products and their impact on the rainforest?

01:56:24
Thanks!
Gwen Toburen
01:56:28
Do you have any suggestions for books of the cultural richness and fables of the RAinforest?
Dr. Ynigo

Does NSTA have lessons for this topic? I could see how students could really get excited about making an impact.
Jennifer Kaszuba
01:57:06
Would you be able to share the article about the fables that you published?
Flavio Mendez, NSTA

Thank you-
Joan Bamforth
01:58:19
Do you do zooms with classes?
Jennifer Kaszuba
01:58:35
Would an indigenous person consider zoonosis to be from animal to human or non-human animal to humans? The definition of animals to humans has always bothered me as humans are animals.
