Fifth graders participate in an interdisciplinary project related to the Savanna biome. In this biome building lesson, 5th graders display the elements of the Savanna biome such as the geography, animals and plants, and precipitation levels to complete a model. Students write about their biome.
Students explore biome data. In this world geography and weather data analysis lesson, students record data about weather conditions in North Carolina, Las Vegas, and Brazil. Students convert Fahrenheit degrees to Celsius degrees and use Microsoft Excel to creat graphs comparing temperature and rainfall. Students construct a related Venn diagram to compare and contrast recorded information.
Students explore organisms and their environments. They examine change over time demonstrate an understanding of physical positions on Earth. They survey earth's diversity, write a report, fill in a data table created on the computer, and create a world map, color keying the seven biomes onto the map.
Students explore Earth science by participating in an environment activity. In this biome lesson, students discuss the importance of a healthy ecology in order to sustain life, both animal and plant. Students utilize a cardboard or wood box to create a biome which they share with the class.
Fifth graders explore the six major biomes found in the world and choose one for further research and presentation. Using internet sources, they identify the major characteristics of their biome and synthesize their information into a creative presentation of their classmates.
Students discover the roles organisms have in biomes. In this animal science lesson, students are split up into pairs to research one specific biome and the roles the organisms have in the specific biome. Students research the biome on the Internet and access various resources, such as encyclopedias. Students present their information to the class and make predictions as to what would happen if certain animals were not present in the biome.
