When our planet thrives, it’s because species and habitats interact to contribute to healthy, functioning ecosystems within the biomes where they exist. Students will learn about the interdependence between species and their habitats, and about the current threats facing our planet’s biodiversity, by participating in a role-playing activity that demonstrates how we’re all connected.

Key objectives for students
Define and explain terms like biome, interdependence, and biodiversity.
Explain different threats that are currently impacting our planet’s biodiversity.
Interpret the connections between biomes and species, and the ripple effects that occur when a biome or species population is damaged.
Role-playing, Peer interaction
