Biodiversity Blitz features three PLT activities for educators of students in grades 3-5. Designed to be flexible, the activities can be used as individual, stand-alone lessons, or all together as a cohesive unit of instruction using a storyline technique.
1. Discover Diversity
Students imagine that they are visitors from outer space, viewing life on Earth for the first time. As they describe the life they find in a small plot, they will become more aware of the diversity of life.
2. Charting Biodiversity
Students explore different ways that organisms are adapted for survival. This activity helps students understand why there are so many different species on Earth.
3. Web of Life
By conducting research and modeling a food web, students learn how diverse organisms are connected in a forest or other ecosystem.
