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 learning exercise, 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.
Students 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.
Fifth graders examine life systems within different biomes. They choose paper plates with the names of animals on them. They research the animals, write reports and draw pictures of them. They create a food chain model by arranging the plates in order.
Participate in a life science unit that examines the relationships of living organisms to each other and to their environment as well as the student's role in the cycle of life. Through hands-on activities, research, and scientific investigations they explore the problem of persistent pollutants and their harmful effects on both humans and ecosystems.
Sixth graders participate in a unit on ecosystems using the Microsoft programs Excel and PowerPoint. They study the skills necessary to show data on Microsoft Excel and PowerPoint.
Learners collect data on consumers, producers and decomposers of a biome of their choice. They create a list of organisms that live in the forest and then research them to find out more information. They connect their information to create a food web.
Students study different biomes, and choose one to make an amusement park based out of. In this biomes lesson plan, students use art supplies and the biome's characteristics to create their amusement park.
In this biomes activity, students read 7 short paragraphs about earth's biomes then match 6 biomes with their definition. Students examine 6 pictures of animals and write the biome in which you would find each animal.
In this biomes worksheet, learners complete a crossword puzzle by figuring out the answers to 17 clues focused on communities and biomes.
Young scholars explain why rain forests have great biodiversity, and list each layer of a rain forest and tell an organism that lives in each. They identify the cause of acid rain and its affect on a rain forest. Students hypothesize the effects of water and sulfuric acid on a leaf and identify the steps of the scientific method.
Students use the Internet to conduct a research project.  In this rain forest lesson, students work in groups to research different parts of the rain forest.  Students research climate, foods, house products and medicines.  Each group produces a rain forest book on their topic.  Students also make a simple ecosystem that they can observe.
Tenth graders explore climate and weather patterns associated with biomes and certain geologic locations and features. Students engage in a trivia search, a jig saw activity, mapping and charting weather systems.
Fifth graders, in groups, research one of the biomes of Canada. They create a multi-slide PowerPoint presentation about their biome that contains specific types of inserted/downloaded pictures, recorded voice, and a sound effect.
Fifth graders explore the six major biomes found in the world and choose one for further research and presentation. Using internet sources, they identify the major characteristics of their biome and synthesize their information into a creative presentation of their classmates.
Fifth graders examine ecosystems through a variety of activities including an Internet hunt, work at centers, and building a diorama on a specific habitat.
Eighth graders engage in a instructional activity about ecosystems with the intention of looking at how it is organized. They cover the biotic and abiotic factors of an ecosystem while looking at the seven types of terrestrial biomes. Students write definitions for key terms.
Fifth graders pretend that they are in charge of deciding on a biome for the teacher to vacation in. They work in small groups to research a specific biome using appropriate web sites and research checklist. They use the information to design a brochure using publishing software. They highlight the important aspects of the biome defining why it would be the best to visit.
