In this video two young students with the help of a biologist, discover the value of wetlands and the importance of conserving them. Using excellent photography the students learn how wetlands filter water and provide habitat for many plants and animals. Two animals examined are the red-winged black bird and the moose. With an emphasis on the biodiversity of this ecosystem, students soon see the wetlands as not something “ugly” but as a beautiful area teeming with life and offering many benefits for both humans and other organisms. The video finishes with students offering suggestions for wetlands protection.
This video could be used in Science classes to introduce the importance of habitat preservation, biodiversity, as well as the value of wetlands. It could also be effective in showing important connections between humans and their environment to help address outcomes in social studies.
