7. Habitat Survey - Assessments

Assessment

  1. Ask one or more of the discussion questions as a homework/assessment question. In particular, the question “Is the area we studied a healthy habitat? Why or why not?” and “What could or should be done to improve this area?” are excellent questions for students to think more deeply about.

Going Further

  1. Conduct a restoration project at the survey site! Turn the student’s good ideas into an action plan to improve the habitat.
  2. Have students research and design a balanced, diverse and sustainable ecosystem for the are they studied. See Ecosystem Plan Project for concrete ideas of how to structure this research project.
