This resource makes use of a BBC class clip on tropical savanna grasslands. Students watch the video clip on the wildlife and ecosystems of the tropical savanna. They should make notes on the characterisctics of the climate and the benefits of fires in the dry season. Then consider the ways animals, plants and people have adapted to and use the savanna ecosystem. Students should then carry out some independent research into another plant or animal and explain the adaptations which help it survive in the savanna grasslands.
