Why is it important for habitats to have different types of living things?
Take your second grade scientists on a virtual field trip to compare the biodiversity of life in different habitats at the California Science Center. Students will investigate what plants need to grow and how animals play an important role in seed dispersal and pollination as they design their own models.

Students will play a board game to model the role that animals play in seed dispersal. Students will investigate how a squirrel and a pigeon help to spread a variety of seeds throughout their schoolyard in order to consider how diverse plants and animals within a habitat support each other’s growth and survival.
