Features & Benefits

Teaching K-5 science in the blended classroom on current topics while integrating rigorous new standards – in a hands-on, fun, differentiated way – is what Rainforest Journey from EdTechLens is all about.

The Rainforest Journey takes students on a trip to the rainforest with video, photos, informational text, formative assessments and much more – all while covering the life science content required by newer curriculums. A separate course is available for every grade from K-5.
