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, 7th graders research an assigned biome and work as a group to create a puppet show that accurately represents the biome.
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.
Sixth graders examine renewable energy sources such as ethanol.  In this photosynthesis and biomes lesson students complete a project on farming techniques. 
Students research a biome.  In this biomes of the Earth lesson, students discuss what they already know about ecology and view pictures of different biomes.  Students work in groups to research a different biome.  Students use the information they collect to create a slide presentation on their biome and then present it to the class.
Students examine how the earth is divided into different biomes that are characterized by a distinctive climate.  In this earth's surface instructional activity students identify adaptations of plants in specific biomes. 
Students research different biomes and find its climate and what plants and animals that can be found in them. In this biomes lesson plan students search the Internet for their information and fill out a biome chart. 
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. 
In this geography worksheet, learners 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 explore environments by analyzing food chains. In this biome identification lesson plan, students define a list of environmental vocabulary terms such as tundra, rain-forest and desert. Students create a fictional self sustainable food chain that is built on one specific biome or environmental setting.
Students 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 students design a section of a zoo to be built in South Africa displaying animals from North America.
Sixth graders learn location and the characteristics of six major land biomes. They, in groups, conduct computer research on a specific biome. They create brochures encouraging people to buy property that is part of that biome.
Young journalists create newspapers of individual biomes after researching their biomes. This lesson can be completed in three phases and concludes with each person publishing their individual newspaper pages.
In this biomes worksheet, students research the plant and animal life found in different habitats. This worksheet has 38 short answer questions.
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.
In this Science instructional activity, students color a biome map of North America. Students color the map by solving the clues listed on a separate sheet of paper.
Learners work together to complete the Biome EcoWatch project. Using the Internet, they research the relationship between abiotic factors and living organisms within a biome. They create a multimedia presentation to share their information with the class.
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.
Seventh graders design four biomes models and plant three types of seeds in them to observe growth. In groups for each type of biome, they predict the seeds' growth in each of the settings. Students follow the conditions on a biome chart and observe for two weeks, noting which seeds did the best in particular biomes.
