Grade 6 Science Biodiverity

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.

Big Ideas:

  • 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.
