Grade 6 Science: Biodiversity

11 Nov

Okay, so we’re beyond exhausted. One of us is still coming down from the report card marathon and the other from job related travelling (why do conferences have to be so far away and, end right at the start of rush hour traffic?). Our tired brains were trying to think of something we had that might help lighten the tired overload of other teachers. When we were looking around, we realized we hadn’t posted anything science related. After the “huh” moment we went with it and decided to share our Biodiversity Tab Book and our At-Risk Species foldable book. One of us must have been digging the idea of creating books during the planning phase!

Hopefully our tired brains stumbled across a resource that will help you out. Happy biodiversity-ing … wait, that’s not right, happy bio … whatever. Enjoy!

 

The tab book was used with the book “Tree of Life”. During a read aloud, students created jot notes on each kingdom and then used those notes to write a summary for each kingdom. We found sites they could use to find examples from each kingdom and set them up with a QR to find a picture and the classification.

The at-risk species foldable book is based on an OERB lesson on “The Importance of At-Risk” Species. We used their categories for each section of the book. We added in the title, scientific classification, how to help and other important information. If you don’t know how to create a foldable book we have found https://hammermill.com/wp-content/uploads/pdfs/make-a-foldable-book.pdf offers a pdf with step by step directions.
