Pupils examine plants and animals that are well adapted to desert life. In this desert biome lesson, students identify 5 of the world's major deserts. Pupils explore plants of the desert and the various adaptations that help them survive with little water. Students examine the animals of the desert biome and discover their adaptations like living in underground burrows.
Explore the five biomes: aquatic, desert, forest, grassland and tundra by using online resources to investigate one of the five biomes and use MediaBlender to create an informational web site for a tour of that biome. Note: Other software applications can be substituted.
Fifth graders explore the biomes of the world. In this geography skills lesson, 5th graders collaborate to research the 6 biomes of the world in order to create presentations that inform their classmates about the animals and plants that occupy the biomes, introduce the attributes of the biomes, and describe the interdependence of species in the biomes.
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.
Tenth graders research locations of biomes and their barriers. In this biomes lesson plan, 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.
Students are able to demonstrate acquired knowledge in energy and biogeochemical cycles through a midterm test. They complete their test after finishing they each choose a biome and point of the key features of it which include: What the climate of the region is like., Where each biome is found and what ist geography is like., and The special adaptations of the vegetation.
