"The Learning Site is a tremendous resource for educators interested in incorporating environmental curriculum in the classroom. All of the Rainforest Alliance's education materials are completely free and meet national standards as compiled by Mid-Continent Research for Education and Training."

North American Association for Environmental Education

 

"This is such a worthwhile curriculum that embraces so many wonderful interdisciplinary possibilities. The pathways are unending when you embrace the Rainforest Alliance, and promote meaningful and authentic lessons while having fun that satisfies students' curiosity!"

 

"It truly is my sincere pleasure to be your partner! I am so proud of the Rainforest Alliance, which encourages student awareness of life outside our city, and helps instill the desire in our students to create change in a global environment affecting future generations. The rich social and moral components of your program are beyond everyday curriculum attainment providing our students with the tools to use newly gained knowledge in an engaging way with the hope of fostering good citizenship."

"This site is a wonderful resource, easy to use and FULL of wonderful ideas! My cultural planning for three grade levels is going to be easy! Thank you for all your hard work!"

"What a wonderful site and what wonderful information! I teach beginning Spanish, K-12. This is a great conservation message to kids while they learn to appreciate the peoples and ecosystems of our southern neighbors. Much more interesting to read your stories than just learning to say hello how are you."

"If other teachers have high populations of Hispanic American students, like we do, I hope they'll use this curriculum. It was interesting for our fifth graders to study bird migrations and understand the connections between songbirds and the rainforest. They were so excited to learn that they might see a bird in their own backyard that has traveled from a rainforest in Latin America."

"Rainforest Alliance's Learning Site -- Packed with articles, slideshows and species profiles, this Web site offers a wealth of kid-friendly rainforest resources, organized by grade level. Don't miss the children's books (available online in HTML format or as downloadable PDF files), which feature colorful illustrations and rainforest photography."

Natural Resources Defense Council

 

"I became aware of the Rainforest Alliance through the Teaching Resources Center at Radford University in Radford, Virginia. The materials included on the Learning Site provided me with the information I needed to teach my children -- ages six and eight -- about the importance of saving our rainforests and the many gifts the rainforest provides. As a result of my daughter's research, she was able to develop a puppet show on rainforests -- their beauty as well as the dangers they face. The materials are attractively designed and extremely child-friendly."
