Learning Intentions:

Students will...

  • Create a tool for their community to make judgments about their local biodiversity.
  • Apply past learning to identify simple and usable criteria to indicate on a scale the health of biodiversity.
  • Use problem solving techniques in choosing observable criteria to make the biodiversity indicator tool.
