Unit 3: Biodiversity Inventory of the School Grounds
In this unit, students will understand the importance of biodiversity and use a biodiversity inventory to collect data and make observations representing the plants and animals on their school grounds, which they will then use to tell a story. The lessons would be good preparation for students to organize and participate in an Eco-Meet or BioBlitz.
Please read the introduction to this curriculum before beginning any lessons.
