Exploring Biodiversity Through Inquiry

By Patt Olivieri

In this resource, Patt provides an excellent plan for the Grade 6 strand on biodiversity with a major focus on inquiry.


The intention of the following learning experience is to share, facilitate, and develop an understanding of biodiversity through inquiry, related to the overall Science expectations, as well as some of the expectations in Language and Social Studies.  The process begins with critical questions related to students’ own lives and the impact they have on their local environment.  The purpose of the critical questions is to engage students to guide their own learning, and gain new knowledge through the triangulation of data – observation, documentation, and conversation (Watt & Colyer).  This provides a framework for investigation through inquiry.
