Take the time to really take a look at all of the great ideas here. Some of it is not the best, but it will give you a good start to a unit.

The Lesson plans are very practical. I like the idea of bringing in contents from the rainforest and giving students clues so that they try to determine what is in there.

Many links to tie rain forests into the classroom. Not sure what the title of this contribution actually references on the site.
