A resource suitable for Key Stage 3 students (aged 11 to 14 years) studying Brazil as a topic within Geography. The slideshow requires short video clips of Amazonia (North Brazil) and South East Brazil. I have referenced a BBC production called Brazil 2000 - Flightpaths (which is now somewhat dated), but other short video clips might easily be used to reflect some of the key differences between the dense coastal strip of South East Brazil and the sparse rainforest of the North.
