For children in Grade 6 learning about Life Systems
From the Curriculum:
Students will learn that biodiversity includes diversity among individuals, species, and ecosystems. Through observations of a specific habitat and the classification of organisms, students will have a first-hand opportunity to appreciate the diversity of living things while recognizing the roles and interactions of individual species within the whole.
Biodiversity includes diversity of individuals, species, and ecosystems.
Classification of the components within a diverse system is a beginning point for understanding the interrelationships among the components.
Because all living things are connected, maintaining diversity is critical to the health of the planet.
Humans make choices that can have an impact on biodiversity.
