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 lesson students answer questions and research the Internet to find characteristics of a biome.
Young scholars 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.
New! Biome Travel Guide
In a perfect marriage of social studies and science, groups work together to research and create a travel guide presentation to share with the class. Not only do kids learn about the climate and geography of a biome, but also the culture, flora, and fauna of the area.
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.
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.
In this Science worksheet, learners color a biome map of North America. Students color the map by solving the clues listed on a separate sheet of paper.
In this biomes worksheet, students research the plant and animal life found in different habitats. This worksheet has 38 short answer questions.
An extensive investigation of the Earth's climate changes awaits your environmental science classes. This top-notch presentation begins by looking at the history of Earth's climate and then predicts the impact on each major terrestrial biome. Information included is comprehensive, easy to read, and includes an array of colorful graphs, diagrams, and photos that bring this urgent topic to life.
Young scholars 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 activity, 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.
Students explore biomes. In this exploring biomes lesson students collect information about different biomes by watching a movie and doing a web activity.
In this biomes worksheet, students color the map of North America according to the biome clues. Students then answer questions about the North American biomes.
Examine how climate and landforms affect plants and animals that live in particular areas. Discover that these same factors affect peoples' homes, jobs, and recreational activities. Pupils research ecosystems and biomes, and then write and illustrate a book detailing what they learned.
A link to a comprehensive macroinvertebrate guide gives you the information needed to prepare for this field study activity. Sample macroinvertebrates are collected from areas representing different environmental conditions. Junior ecologists record the macroinvertebrates sampled and then present the data in tables or graphs. Keys, worksheets, questions for further discussion, and suggested extensions are supplied. This plan provides young scientists with a valuable hands-on experience.
Students 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.
Students exchange ecological information with students from different geographic biomes. They box up the "unique ecologically significant features" of their area, send the box to another class in another area and then receive a similar presentation from them.
