Description

This mini-bundle includes all of the templates, guiding materials, and planning materials for high school science problem-based learning curriculum as it relates to invasive species, including a problem-based learning challenge and a community action project.


Each student or small group of students will choose one invasive species that is impacting their community. They will deeply explore the problem and develop a theoretical comprehensive eradication plan. They will then coordinate a service-learning style experience. Students plan a course of action to work toward solving the invasive species problem, and then they take action.

This experience is a great way for high school students to develop essential 21st-century skills such as problem-solving. The community service and leadership elements make this experience an awesome resume builder as well.

Both of the resources in this bundle include a printable and digital version (Google Apps). The resources are not editable at this time.
