Grade 6 Biodiversity Project
Because all living things are connected you are to select one living thing to do an
oral/multimedia report on. Please ensure that your species is unique and something
that we can all learn from (e.g. please don’t pick a dog or cat or other common
animals). You may pick ANY living thing (including plants).
You will be given class time to work on this project and you can do research at
home as well. All parts of your presentation will be completed at school and not at
home.
You may report on this living thing in any format you wish (powerpoint, blogging,
wiki, glogster etc.)
Your report should include the following:
 Name of species (generic and scientific)
 Scientific classification
 Habitat
 How the species contributes to the diversity of life
 How do humans continue to impact the natural environment of your chosen
species?
Due Dates: One part of your research is due on October 6th, 2010
Two parts of your research are due on October 12th, 2010
Four parts of your research (final project) is due on October 18th, 2010
Your presentation should be 2 minutes in length explaining all of the above. You
are the expert and your audience is here to learn about your species. Be specific
and include lots of details that will be educational and exciting to your audience.
