6th Grade Biodiversity PBL
PBL … Project Based Learning. Students apply what they learn in class to a real-world situation. Our Lyncourt students, guided by Mrs. MacCollum, worked on the following project. If you click on the link below you can view the videos they created.
GOAL: To increase awareness about BIODIVERSITY and encourage support of the Lyncourt community’s environment, such as the butterfly garden.
How can we, as conservation biologists, inform our fellow students on new species and invasive species, and encourage them to work towards protecting and preserving the environment in our community?
Invasive Species are invaders that we don’t want. They are animals, plant, or fungi that are not native to a specific place. They overpopulate causing damage to the environment and ecosystem.
Zebra Mussels, Lionfish, the Green Crab, and some snakes are examples of invasive species.
Biodiversity is the variety of plants and animals living on Earth, playing an important part in keeping the balance of nature. Plants and animals are all continuously evolving and adapting to the environment around them. Scientists have estimated that there are about 8.7 million species on Earth, each year about 18,000 new species are discovered.
