Forest Life

UPM Forest Life is a gorgeous interactive website created by an international forestry company.  UPM is a paper producer but takes efforts to do so in a sustainable manner; I think this website is a nice effort to raise awareness about sustainability.

The site allows you to explore a number of beautifully photographed forest scenes through clickable hotspots that bring up further images or video, along with text about forest sites.

This video is brought on screen by clicking on a telescope to "see" the cranes.
Language Lens:

  • The information gleaned through exploring Forest Life's interactive interface would be great for upper-elementary or higher students learning categorization (plants, animals, activities, habitats) and sequencing strategies.
  • This site is a great one for the Fall season, when many students are studying tree growth and cycling.
