In a mosaic, individual pieces are combined in order to reveal the bigger picture. Similarly, in order for nature to be able to support and provide for our ever growing world, we need all the components that comprise its foundation—biodiversity—to be strong and healthy. To represent a similar collective effort, students will design individual squares that reflect what biodiversity means to them and then assemble all the squares in a mosaic to raise awareness about the bigger picture: the importance of protecting biodiversity.

Key objectives for students
Define biodiversity.
Create a piece of art representing their individual interpretation of biodiversity.
Reflect on the completed project’s symbolism of efforts around the world to restore biodiversity.
