Students design their own investigation to record biodiversity in the school ground. They will decide on strategies to investigate species diversity and ecosystem diversity. Their goal is to find out if there are relationships between species diversity and different habitats (mini ecosystems).
- design an investigation to find out how species diversity is affected by habitats around the school
- identify different habitats around the school and link these with different types of ecosystems
- collect data about the school species diversity in different habitats
- organise all the data collected by all the students to analyse and draw conclusions.
