Year 8 Geography - Biodiversity and species

A sequence of four lessons. The first lesson provides the foundational knowledge and understanding required by students to meaningfully participate in the remainder of the lessons. In this lesson, students will discover the answer to the questions: What is biodiversity? What are species? In the second and third lessons, after learning what species are and the importance of biodiversity, students will discover the species of plants and animals that are present within their school grounds. In the last lesson, they will represent the data visually (e.g. pie charts, column graphs) using digital technologies.
