Walking the Amazon

Published Monday, March 07, 2011.
Last updated: Monday, March 07, 2011

Between 2008-2010, Ed Stafford, a British Explorer, walked the length of the Amazon, from it's source in the mountains of Peru, to it's mouth in Brazil.

Use the information on this site to research his journey.

http://schools.rainforestsos.org/amazon-blog/the-story-so-far#content

  • How long did it take him?
  • Did he travel alone?
  • What dangers did he face?
  • Why did he do it?
  • What is the meeting of the waters?

Look at the 'videos' section for more information. This has questions sent in by children which Ed answers. Think of five questions you would ask him.

We will be using the information you gather in class. Please make your notes in your ideas books.

Optinal Extension

Make a map of Ed's journey down the Amazon.

It's up to you Grace, you can make it into a poster or fact file if you would like. Or you could just make notes.

I think on the question meeting the waters I remember something like that in journey to the river sea. It described the meeting of the waters.

Yes you do have to write down 5 questions that you would ask him. I think your comment is great Gloy and thank you for responding Charisse. It think you should carry on the chat about what you think the meeting of the waters is.
