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 study physical characteristics of a biome.  In this ecology lesson students research information on biomes then write sumary description. 
Tenth graders examine characteristics and animals of terrestrial biomes. In this Earth's biomes lesson, 10th graders view a PowerPoint, take noes, sort pictures, research biomes, and create a diorama of a biome for presentation.
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.
Sixth graders view several segments of the video, "How Animals Survive." They discuss elements of survival. Students list living and nonliving things found in their backyards and schoolyards. Students work in groups to complete the activity "What's in our Backyard?" They use the internet to complete their Wild Thing Share Fair project.
Young scholars conduct an internet study regarding habitat, ecosystem, biome and the region they live in. They observe the habitat by visiting a State Park and observing the organisms in their habitat. In addition, they create their own habitat such as a terrarium,
Young scholars 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.
Students study five different biome types including aquatic, desert, forest, grassland, and tundra. They create a travel website of a simulated trip to one of the biomes.
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.
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. 
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.
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.
Learners explore the environment by creating a poster presentation. In this biome lesson, 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.
Students 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. 
In this biomes worksheet, learners will use an atlas to find the location of 12 cities listed on a graph onto their world map. Then students will use the cities' annual precipitation to figure out what biomes that city is found.
Young scholars examine the characteristics of different biomes. In this ecology lesson, students design biomes where given animals can live. They discuss the design within the group and share it with the class.
Learners describe the six land biomes of the world and compare and contrast the different biomes. They study the characteristics of biomes including animals, plants, temperatures, etc. They create a slideshow presentation to help the zoo improve animal habitats.
Students discuss the different types of ecosystems and the composition of biomes. Working in groups, they define various related terms and make posters of them. Then they explain their posters to the class.
Young journalists create newspapers of individual biomes after researching their biomes. This instructional activity can be completed in three phases and concludes with each person publishing their individual newspaper pages.
