Science (Grade 6) - Biodiversity
Grade 6 students focus on the use of classification systems as ways of learning about the great diversity of species and of organizing the study of species. Students will learn how all living things including humans are connected and how this biodiversity is important for a healthy planet. Through the use of classification systems they will learn the roles of different species and how they are connected to this diverse system. Humans make choices that affect diversity and it is important to recognize different viewpoints, for instance that of a developer and that of local residences whom are concerned about the environment. By considering different viewpoints and biasis students will learn to make informed decisions towards their own viewpoints.
