Design Thinking for Grade 6 Science


In the Design Thinking for Grade 6 Science, Human Impact on Biodiversity, program, students will learn about biodiversity and its importance in maintaining the stability of ecosystems.

Through investigating different local and global issues, students will begin to see the negative impact humans have on biodiversity in aquatic ecosystems. Students will make global connections by looking at the impact international trade has on the biodiversity of our ecosystems.

Students are driving towards answering the question, How might we preserve biodiversity of aquatic ecosystems by minimizing the impact caused by humans?
