2020 marks a major milestone for Dr Jane Goodall and the whole Roots & Shoots family around the world. The 14 July will celebrate 60 years to the day since Jane first set foot in what is now the Gombe Stream National Park in Tanzania. She travelled there as a young woman to study the wild chimpanzees that call it home, and her ground-breaking work changed not only her life, but our scientific understanding of these amazing animals and of the world around us.
In this activity you and your students will:
- Learn about Jane’s work in the Gombe Stream National Park
- Create a storyboard or cartoon strip of Jane’s life and work.
This project will help students see how scientific study, like Jane’s research with chimpanzees in Gombe, can help us discover the best ways to protect our environment and the amazing animals that live there.
