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.
Students explore Earth science by identifying environmental factors. In this biome lesson, students discuss the importance of a functioning ecology and design a biome diorama. Students utilize images of trees and plants which represent a forest for their biome.
In this biomes worksheet, learners use an on line source to complete a table of the Earth's biomes. Students include the types of plants in each biome, the types of animals, the climate and any details about the biomes. Learners answer twenty questions about the Earth's biomes.
For this internet worksheet about biomes, learners log onto the workshop site: http:/mbgnet.mobot.org/, read about different biomes, illustrate, and tell about something they see in an outside environment. Students draw and tell about one picture.
Students explore environmental awareness by completing a construction project. In this biomes lesson, students identify the different elements for life to thrive in an ecosystem. Students utilize a cardboard or wood box to create a biome diorama including references to animals, plants and elevation.
Students create a model biome to understand the abiotic and biotic factors that go into creating a biome. In this biomes lesson plan, students should display plants, animals, temperature, precipitation, and more.
Learners create a model biome. In this ecology instructional activity, students use materials to create a model biome. There is an extension activity that allows learners to write about plants and animals and their specific biome.
Students create a desert biome to understand the abiotic and biotic factors of that biome. In this desert biome lesson plan, students include elevation, precipitation, temperature, plants, and more.
Students design a three dimensional model of a biome. They include both biotic and abiotic factors that are in that biome, and write a description of all of the important characteristics of the biome.
Fourth graders describe biomes. In this environmental lesson, 4th graders build a model of a biome using everyday materials to represent the biotic, abiotic, and  the terrain elements unique to the biome.
Travel the world from the comfort of your classroom with this unit on the Earth's biomes.
Tenth graders gain an understanding of how individual organisms adapt and relate to an environment. By picking a real biome and environment, the "animal" that students create needs to match all of its life systems to a particular area.
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.
Students research animals and their habitats/biomes using internet research. They practice efficient note taking skills while completing their researching the animals and the habitat using the assigned fact sheet. They produce a digital slideshow, website or brochure based on the information.
Ninth graders research the average temperature and precipitation of a prairie region to determine the type of climate it is, and how it differs from other biomes. They examine the types of adaptions animals have made to live in the prairie regions.
In this taiga learning exercise, students read a short article describing what a taiga is and then answer 10 multiple choice, true or false or short answer questions relating to the article.
Twelfth graders are asked to design a device that will detect a natural disaster such as a tornado or earthquake. Working in small groups, 12th graders will research systems that are already in place, then design their own. Students are required to write a 12 page paper explaining their devise. This is a students driven research project that concludes with a field trip.
Students role play the role of a travel agent. In groups, they must plan a trip around the world making stops in a different biome. They use the internet to discover the characteristics of each biome and create a travel brochure for their trip. They present their trip and information to the class to end the activity.
Learners examine the structure of ecosystems. In this ecology lesson, students listen to a lecture on relationships among organisms and biomes. Learners use the information to create ecosystem organization pyramids.
High schoolers explore the unique adaptations of the pickleweed to the salt content of their environment. A variety of biomes and their adaptations are examined as a lead in to this lesson.
