Future City Lab: Interconnected II

This lesson is the second in a three-part series. In the first lesson, students are introduced to the general ideas of biodiversity, interconnectedness, and keystone species and the historical problem of oyster depletion in New York Harbor. The second lesson deepens understanding of oysters’ habitats and offers some potential solutions being pursued right now. The third lesson is a class activity designed to summarize and encapsulate the teaching points of the previous two, but can stand alone if desired.
