Gombe Activity: Jane’s Lost Notebook

Gombe Mission Briefing ComicThis activity is all about relating the work that your students carry out to help people, animals and the environment in their local area to the work of the Jane Goodall Institute in Tanazania, particularly in the Greater Gombe Ecosystem, where Dr Jane Goodall started working back in 1960.

In this activity your students will:

  • Look at the people, animals and environment of the Greater Gombe Ecosystem and compare them to your local area.
  • Write first-person accounts of the problems that are facing Gombe, with suggestions for what improvements and help could be provided.
  • Compile the results of the work into a class notebook.
  • “Spread the word” by presenting their work to other members of school or local groups in the form of a presentation, play, wall frieze, etc.

To support this activity, you should also download and print out the Gombe mission briefing comic.
