Make for change – resources for kids who want to help protect the environment

Posted by Greenpeace UK - 28th September 2018

Want to get your kids excited about the planet? Look no further!

Below you can find a presentation and activities about deforestation (for palm oil) developed for primary school teachers. There are accompanying teaching notes, a poster template for an activity at the end and a briefing.

Palm oil resources for primary schools

In 2018 Greenpeace released a report documenting the huge amount of deforestation that has occurred in Indonesia to make way for palm oil plantations. It also named big brands who are still linked to rainforest destruction. We created the below presentation and resources for our volunteer Greenpeace Speakers to use in primary schools. To see if you have a Speaker near to you, please click here otherwise feel free to download the resources yourself! Special Rang-tan books are also available for schools (one per school) in limited numbers – contact Ed Fuller if you’d like to request one by emailing

We’ve also put together some fun and creative resources for children who care about our planet and the species that live on it. Below are colouring in sheets, Tangrams, fingerprint templates and Origami sheets!
