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.
Students 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 instructional 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, students complete a crossword puzzle by figuring out the answers to 17 clues focused on communities and biomes.
Students 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.
Young scholars 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.  Young scholars 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 lesson 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.
Students compare the differences between the different terrestrial and aquatic biomes. They discuss the characteristics of each biome. Students are asked what biome they live in. They are asked what is the biome located on land called? Students are asked what a biome located on water is called?
For this environment worksheet, students compare the precipitation that is found in different types of biomes which include grasslands, deserts, tropical rain forests, tundras, and forest. They answer 5 questions based on reading a bar graph showing the precipitation amounts.
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.
Students examine how acid rain affects the rain forest. They identify the causes of acid rain, determine how human behavior can affect the environment and discuss ways to prevent acid rain and acid rain damage to the rain forest.
Students explore oil field applications of Shape Memory Alloys.  In this engineering lesson students divide into groups and research mini research applications then complete a project.
