Students study biomes and their major characteristics.  In this biomes lesson students draw a climatogram and discuss climate of a specific area. 
Students examine how the earth is divided into different biomes that are characterized by a distinctive climate.  In this earth's surface lesson students identify adaptations of plants in specific biomes. 
Third graders create paper mache globes, paint them and label the oceans and the continents. In groups, they research a biome, write about it and create an artistic visual representation of the biome and present it to the class.
Seventh graders create a puppet show to demonstrate their understanding of Biomes. In this Life Science lesson plan, 7th graders research an assigned biome and work as a group to create a puppet show that accurately represents the biome.
In this biomes worksheet, students create a project about biomes after completing online research with websites given. Students complete 4 steps in completing their project.
Students compare data from two proposed strategies on how ot best preserve the diversity of plants and animals. They complete a worksheet and share theirviews with the rest of the class.
Pupils research different biomes and find its climate and what plants and animals that can be found in them. In this biomes lesson students search the Internet for their information and fill out a biome chart. 
Second graders investigate biomes and the plants and animals that are native to particular biomes. They participate in a class discussion, conduct Internet research on a selected biome, and create a shoebox biome using their Internet research information.
Future environmental scientists compare data from two different conservation strategies. Alone this lesson is sufficient, but as part of the Exploring Biomes unit produced by the Arizona Fish and Game Department, it becomes top-notch. 
Young scholars explore environments by analyzing food chains. In this biome identification lesson, students define a list of environmental vocabulary terms such as tundra, rain-forest and desert. Young scholars create a fictional self sustainable food chain that is built on one specific biome or environmental setting.
Young scholars participate in a three part unit about biomes. Part one, students research the biomes of North America and part two consists of research on zoos and a field trip to a zoo. While part three ties together the first two when young scholars design a section of a zoo to be built in South Africa displaying animals from North America.
Sixth graders examine renewable energy sources such as ethanol.  In this photosynthesis and biomes activity students complete a project on farming techniques. 
Once junior ecologists are familiar with Earth's major biomes, they hone in on Arizona's biomes. Using a website about Arizona's natural resources, learners will identify biotic communities. Beautiful maps and worksheets are provided for your convenience. Make sure to check out the other lessons in this unit via Lesson Planet.
Tenth graders research locations of biomes and their barriers. In this biomes lesson, 10th graders examine location, environmental conditions, and species of plants and animals that live in the biome. Students take notes and create a poster or product to share with their peers. 
Fifth graders, in groups, list the physical characteristics of a biome and think of ways in which animals might have to adapt to live there and make a biome mobile ball that show the different types of habitats that shape the praire biome.
Fifth graders investigate biomes of the earth. In this biomes lesson, 5th graders explore eight different biomes which include the tropical rain forest, deciduous forest, grasslands, and taiga. They design an artistic scrapbook that shows the characteristics of their assigned biome which they research using the Internet and books.
Sixth graders discuss climate and trends they notice in a map of the climate zones as well as the relationship between Earth and the sun and the role it play's in a region's climate. Working in groups of four, 6th graders complete a worksheet then have a class discussion over the assignment.
In this geography activity, students read about the earth's soil, and vegetation regions. Students take notes and answer 5 short answer comprehension questions as they read the selection.
Students use the internet to gather information on the biomes of the world. They identify the climate and unique characteristics of each biome along with any threat to them. They create their own campaign to preserve wildlife.
Pupils use the internet to locate and gather information on the world's biomes. They compare and contrast biomes to ecosystems and describe the human effects on ecosystems. They answer questions to end the lesson.
