I teach English Language Arts to all three of the 5th grade classes at our school. Every year I teach a nonfiction unit to over 60 fifth graders. During this unit, the focus of our reading, research and writing is rainforests. We use nonfiction texts, articles and documentary videos to gain understanding of the culture, geography and ecology of rainforests in the Western Hemisphere. The most impactful book we read is The Most Beautiful Roof in the World by Kathryn Lasky, which profiles the work of Dr. Meg Lowman. Dr. Lowman is a pioneering rainforest canopy researcher and an inspiring role model to me and my students. Every year students are amazed by her innovative ways of getting to the canopy and they're inspired by her passion for saving the planet's rainforests. This summer, Dr. Meg Lowman is leading a group to the rainforest to help with her research and to do a service project in an Amazon River community. I would treasure this opportunity to learn with Meg Lowman firsthand and actually participate in some of the research my students and I have only read about. More importantly, my students would benefit from hearing first person stories of efforts to conserve rainforests in addition to hearing about the people who's lives are interconnected with rainforest ecology.
