Young scholars 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 lesson, 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. For 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 worksheet, 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.
Young scholars 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 lesson.
Students examine the structure of ecosystems. In this ecology lesson, students listen to a lecture on relationships among organisms and biomes. Students use the information to create ecosystem organization pyramids.
Students 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 activity.
Sixth graders explore biomes and ecosystems. In this ecology lesson, 6th graders research various biomes in order to explain the factors (biotic & abiotic and human activity) that help the various plants and animals that exist in the ecosystems.
In this tundra worksheet, students read about tundras and the plants and animals that live in tundras. They then use what they learned to answer the 10 questions on the page. The answers are on the last page.
In this biome organizer chart worksheet, learners use the triangular chart to research and list the names of animals that live in the tundra, coniferous forest, deciduous forest, tropical rain forest, grasslands, and desert. Students fill in six areas of the chart.
Students seek scientific and technological solutions to envrionmental problems. They record class activities in a journal. They identify relationships among living things and their environments.
Middle schoolers examine and explore desert biomes. They compare and contrast the biomes of Utah and classify plants and animals based on their biome. They also research plant and animal interactions within a biome.
