Gorillas: Lesson plans, printables and videos

Here is a collection of resources for those studying gorillas. Lesson plans, printables, videos and photos are an excellent way to add the resources you need to complete your own unit studies, lessons or to supplement other materials you are using.

There are online and printable materials, gorilla fact sheets and resources that explore gorilla habitats, physical characteristics, behavior, diet, reproduction, longevity, conservation and research.

Also included below are a number of videos featuring gorillas. Videos are an excellent way to let children explore a subject in visual form. Also, check with your local television listings as programs on gorillas are frequently played.
