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.
Young scholars telecommunicate and use the US Mail to network students from five biomes in the United States in order to monitor water quality in each area. They have e-mail pals and exchange materials representative of themselves and their environment.
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.
Students 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.
Fourth graders discover what a biome is and study biomes that are native to Utah in this series of lessons. They examine how Utah's biomes have changed over time due to the influence of the Mormon pioneers and other human populations.
Students identify the biomes of each region: mountains, forests, plains, tundra, desert. They identify and describe features of North American desert (Mojave, Sonoron, Great Basin. Chihuahaun). They identify what we are doing today is different from what they saw on the Internet.
Tenth graders examine the differences in biomes and their characteristics.  In this biome instructional activity students answer questions and research the Internet to find characteristics of a biome. 
Students write a persuasive paper following the expository theme format of introduction, first body paragraph, second body paragraph, third body paragraph, and conclusion that addresses the prompt of the final project adequately. They use the correct conventions of English in writing the paper. Students explain the main arguments and include sufficient supporting evidence for each in the position paper.
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.
Travel the world from the comfort of your classroom with this unit on the Earth's biomes.
How does the availability of resources affect a population? Eager ecologists explore the answer through a multi-generation population simulation game, collecting and analyzing data, then researching a biome. The end products are an Excel graph of data and a PowerPoint presentation about a particular biome. Each child will need access to a computer or tablet to make their presentation, or they could work in pairs. Each group (or individual) will present their biome information to the class.
Learners view a PowerPoint presentation on biomes and their classifications. Divide them into groups and assign them each an individual biome to research. There are pictures of the PowerPoint slides and notes about what to teach for each, but a direct link to the presentation is not provided. Take the time to find it on the Internet because it is an excellent support to the lesson plan.
In cooperative groups, emerging ecologists research assigned biomes found in Arizona. Combining photos and facts, they use PowerPoint to produce a fully automated commercial that lasts 45 seconds. In addition to the lesson outline, a nifty instructions sheet and grading rubric are provided.
Environmental science learners examine satellite imagery of temperature, vegetation, precipitation, and productivity. They use these maps to understand how scientists divide the planet into major biomes. As part of a larger unit on biomes, this lesson is a vital piece. 
Middle schoolers study the different types of coastlines and their territories. In this marine coasts lesson students identify life forms that are in the coastal regions. 
Pupils work together to examine the characteristics of a biome. Using the Internet, they research the relationship between biotic and abiotic factors and living organisms. They develop a presentation along with a solution to a problem the biome is facing today.
In this earth science worksheet, students act as travel agents for a particular biome and construct a brochure to sell the class on benefits of taking a vacation to their biome. They include each of the features given in the exercise.
If your class will be studying biomes and you also want to address some technology standards, check this out! Each class member becomes an expert on 1 biome through online research, and writes a 4-page report that covers climate, animals, vegetation, and human impact. This could be a good cross-curricular lesson between language arts and science.
Pupils explore biomes.  In this exploring biomes lesson students collect information about different biomes by watching a movie and doing a web activity.
