In this biomes worksheet, students review the characteristics of aquatic biomes and terrestrial biomes. This worksheet has 12 fill in the blank, 6 multiple choice, and 4 short answer questions.
In this biology instructional activity, students watch a movie about various land biomes. Then they use the word list to the right to complete each of the statements. Students also complete the brief quiz about the movie that follows.
In this food web worksheet, students match a set of terms with animals on a web, review a set of biome descriptions, choose one at list its producers, consumers and decomposers. Students then use their biome organisms to create a food chain.
Students study biomes and ecosystems. They watch videos on rainforests and the food web and select a country of ancestry or interest to research. They write a report on the flora and fauna of their selected country. They present to the class.
Fourth graders review all the materials they've studied about the rain forest and begin to organize their research paper by choosing a topic. They begin by rereading the introductory book, "The Great Kapok Tree," by Lynne Cherry as well as work on a graphic organizer for the beginning of their research paper.
In this biomes worksheet, students visit the Science Spot website at http://sciencespot.net and use additional links provided to complete a chart about the various biomes.
In this bluebirds project worksheet, students are given directions on completing a project about bluebirds including measurements, scientific method questions, data entry, and more. Students complete 15 exercises.
In this communities and biomes worksheet, students are given twenty terms such as taiga, tundra and permafrost to find in a word search puzzle.
In this vocabulary building worksheet, students matches the word with a definition, and uses definition clues to select the correct word.
Students videotape information about the biome in which they live without naming it and send this to other students across the nation so they can guess which biome it comes from. Students include local ecosystems, information concerning their city or town, and information about their school.
Students exchange information with students from various geographic biomes. They explore the unique ecologically significant features of the biomes and share with other students.
Third graders investigate the concept of differentiation of biomes. They select one biome and conduct research to obtain information. In particular, 3rd graders demonstrate how to find a biome on a map. The information is used to create a slideshow presentation.
Eighth graders identify the different kinds of biomes. In this life science lesson, 8th graders explain their importance in an ecosystem. They take a BrainPop quiz at the end of the lesson..
Third graders go to the media center to perform research on the subject of biomes. They use the note-taking strategy to take down important information. Then students put together presentations from the research.
Students investigate the similarities and differences in soils from different states with an analysis of its physical and chemical properties.
Learners research, present, and compare information about the features of seven biomes that exist in the U.S. They view and discuss the images on the Arkansas state quarter, conduct research on the biomes, and create a poster of the climate in the biome.
Fourth graders conduct research about the biome of the American grasslands. They use the internet in a computer lab. The teacher can use the website provided or find others. Students complete a custom worksheet made for completing work at the website provided.
New! The African Savanna
Are you thinking about taking your class to the local zoo? Kids of all ages love visiting exotic animals in order to learn about biodiversity, habitat, and animal adaptations. Here is a 44-page activity guide that provides educators with a wide variety of pre-trip activities intended to enhance the overall field trip experience. Each activity is hands on and involves reading, research, creative thinking, and collaboration to facilitate interest and a deeper understanding of the curriculum. For example, one activity provides children with the opportunity to create a cheetah diorama.
Explore the issue of rising sea levels through an examination of data, satellite photos, and human interest stories. High schoolers work with groups to research and determine, based on data, whether or not sea levels are indeed rising,. Then they develop a proposal to local government regarding what actions should be taken to respond to sea level changes. The activities are designed around North Carolina's coastlines, but this could easily be adapted, if needed, to reflect a more local coastline. Although the lesson plan only calls for four days, in order to provide adequate research time, you may want to consider planning a full week for these activities.
Students create a slide show or iMovie reflecting an animal of their choice. After choosing a biome, they research it on the Internet and write a list of the characteristics. Comparing and contrasting their biome to another biome, they create a Venn diagram using Kidspiration and take digital pictures of an animal to create an iMovie.
