To help educators teach science concepts to students in grades K-5, EdTechLens created Rainforest Journey, a subscription-based and standards-aligned online curriculum that uses high-resolution original photographs and videos to illustrate scientific concepts – such as adaption, the water and life cycles, predators and prey— in order to foster curiosity about science.

Each photograph and video is identified by a short caption. Vocabulary definitions appear when the student hovers over a word with the cursor. Enrichment passages that present more in-depth concepts follow each reading passage. An audio component that accompanies all lessons is available.

The program includes three different types of assessments: factual multiple-choice items, depth of knowledge questions, and open-ended discussion topics.
