Biodiversity Basics

Biodiversity Basics

Editorial Reviews

This student manual completes an outstanding package for teaching topics in biodiversity. Permission is given to reproduce student sheets. A test of this capability produced a beautiful copy using a standard photocopier set on normal, light production; the manual's shades of gray-green and white lettering on a black background look even better on the copy. Many activities are in a game mode, with activity cards for directions or problems to solve, maps to construct, and graphs to record data. Hands-on activities are emphasized. The materials needed are readily available from home or school supplies. The activities are diverse and cover the plight of Florida panthers, natural selection of peppered moths, chemicals for growing cotton, the history of Easter Island, southern corn blight, and clever fictional situations and problems to solve. Science is melded with social studies, communication skills, poetry, mapping, basic math, simple economics, careers, and the role of zoos. The technical jargon is not significant. Visuals include black-and-white photographs, drawings, diagrams, graphs, tables, and symbols. This is a rich teaching aid. Highly Recommended, Grades 5-12. REVIEWER: Dr. John R. Pancella (retired, Montgomery County Public Schools)
