APES Unit 2 Review: Biodiversity! Aligned to the AP Environmental Science Course and Exam Description! Works great as an AP Environmental Science Test Review or learning guide for your Ecosystems Unit!
Students will know exactly what College Board expects them to learn. Each Essential Standard is written out on the left side of the paper, with focused, aligned, open ended questions on the right side for students to work through.
Most of the questions are open ended, asking students to think critically and put concepts together in meaningful ways. Students are also asked to draw, label, and annotate diagrams, create graphs, explain data sets, and justify reasoning.

- 2.1 Introduction to Biodiversity
- 2.2 Ecosystem Services

The APES Unit 2 Review can be used several ways:
- While going through a Unit as a working document, a learning guide, students can add to it as they read though the text book or listen to lecture
- To complete just before a Unit test as a study guide
- At the end of the semester to prepare for the AP Environmental Science Exam
When used as a learning guide: It is helpful to have students begin the Unit by going through the Essential Knowledge itself, highlighting key vocabulary. This gives them a good foundation to grow from, they know what to look for and what is important as they learn about, or review for the Unit.
When my students use these as review, I put them into small groups of three or four. They work together to complete the questions. Then students get into new groups and review their answers. I help guide them and help with questions that they can not come to an agreement on.

I have bought all these review guides for APES and love them. They are not only great Unit Reviews for my students but help guide me to make sure I have covered everything in each unit completely. They are very thoughtful and well done, Key included. – Christina B. September 17, 2020
My kids love these! They are so much better than just plain question/answer study guides. They definitely prompt higher level thinking and work great for visual learners too. – Alexandria L. November 16, 2020
