Take a Tour of a Biome
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.
Biomes of the World (and Canada)
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.
Praire Biome Models
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.
Biomes and the water cycle
Learners create a desert biome and a prairie biome and see how plants survive in both. In this biomes lesson plan, studnets create their biomes and see how the water cycle effect each biome and plant differently.
Where in the World? Biomes of the Earth
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.
Animals and Their Biomes
Learners categorize animals according to their natural biomes using biome and animal flashcards.
Biomes and Plant Growth
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.
A Statistical Study of Three Biomes
Students collect data from one of three selected biomes. Data are then organized and statistically analyzed. This project engages students of different backgrounds grouped cooperatively in a relevant outdoor hands-on learning experience.
Adapting to a New Biome
Students research animal found in biome where they live, explore its habitat, and transport animal to new biome where it currently could not possibly survive; students give animal adaptations so it can survive, and present to class using PowerPoint.
Scrapping the Biomes
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.
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.
The Desert Biome
Learners explore the environment by creating a poster presentation. In this biome lesson plan, students identify the characteristics of a desert and the species which inhabit it. Learners create a bulletin board based on a specific biome such as savanna, tundra or rainforest.
Building a Biome
Students investigate how plants grow in different biomes. In this biomes lesson plan, students plant sees of impatiens, lima beans and rye seeds in egg cartons. When the plants begin to grow they simulate the assigned biome conditions varying the water and amount of light for each biome. Students observe the differences in the growth of the plants in each biome and answer 8 questions about their results.
Seventh graders research about the climate and weather in different biome types. In this biology lesson, 7th graders create a brochure of their chosen biome using Microsoft Publisher. They present their work in class.
Students research a specific biome. In this earth science lesson, students choose a project to complete that will display key characteristics of their biome. Each project has a description of what should be included.
North American Biomes
For this Science worksheet, students color a biome map of North America. Students color the map by solving the clues listed on a separate sheet of paper.
Young scholars study the physical and behavioral adaptations animals have made to their environments. For this animal adaptations lesson, students study cockroaches and pictures of animal body parts to learn about adaptions to animals. Young scholars complete animal fact sheets after researching the adaptations an animal has made and present their findings to their class. Students complete their own biome illustration to depict an animal and its adaptations.
Elements of Biology: Biomes
Students describe the different types of biomes. In this biology lesson, students create a map of assigned biome with descriptive paragraphs. They share their findings to class.
Ecology Lesson Plan: Exploring Biomes
Young scholars study physical characteristics of a biome. In this ecology lesson students research information on biomes then write sumary description.
Unique Plants of the Biomes
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.
