Biodiversity of Vertebrate Animals

Biodiversity of Vertebrate Animals

Grades : Grade 06

Examine and classify real specimens, discover how vertebrate animals have adapted to a variety of habitats, and assess human impacts on vertebrate biodiversity. Half the lesson will be spent in a learning lab exploring original objects at thematic tables; the other half will be spent in the ROM’s Schad, Hands-On Biodiversity, and Birds galleries. Explore relationships in nature through the ROM’s incredible collections, close observation, questioning, and discussion.
