In this lesson, students learn how cultural practices can spread not only ideas and traditions, but also invasive species into new areas.
Step 1 - Inquire: Students watch a video outlining invasive species and write a summary outlining their new knowledge.
Step 2 - Investigate: Students play a digital game and a hands-on game to understand how invasive species can outcompete native species in their environments.
Step 3 - Inspire: Students use guided questions to conduct research about an invasive species in their community and create a presentation to spread awareness.
This lesson gives students the go-ahead to explore the underlying cultural practices that could spread invasive species and ways to reduce the spread to maintain a healthy and balanced ecosystem. All materials embedded in the lesson are factual and accurate. That being so, this lesson has passed our science credibility review process and is recommended for teaching.
