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.
Biome Organizer Chart
In this biome organizer chart learning exercise, students 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.
Introducing Terrestrial Biomes
Students use a map to indicate the locations of the different biomes in the world. In this terrestrial biomes lesson, students discuss the plants and animals adapted to live in each biome.
Tenth graders comprehed how individual organism adapt and relate to an environment. They investigate where biomes are located and what specific biomes are like. Pupils give examples of biomes (land and water), and how temperature and precipitation affect biomes.
Biomes in a Box
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.
Biomes in a Box
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.
Hands On Biome-Building
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.
Hands on Biome--Building
Students create a model biome. In this ecology lesson, students use materials to create a model biome. There is an extension activity that allows students to write about plants and animals and their specific biome.
Hands On Biome-Building
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.
Build the Taiga: Hands on Biome-Building
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.
Biomes Newsletter Report
If your class will be studying biomes and you also want to address some technology standards, check this out! Each class member becomes an expert on 1 biome through online research, and writes a 4-page report that covers climate, animals, vegetation, and human impact. This could be a good cross-curricular lesson between language arts and science.
Biomes: Arctic Changes
Young scholars study global warming and its effects on the Arctic. In this biomes lesson students write in their journals about the impact of global warming.
Students view a video, listen to the Great Kapok Tree and navigate the way to find information of Rainforests. In this biome lesson, students design models of the layers of the rainforest.
Explore both terrestrial and aquatic biomes by viewing this PowerPoint. Details are plentiful as there are 59 slides in the collection. Unfortunately, about half of the photos are grainy. With the value of the information presented, it would probably be worth your time to replace all of the sub-quality photos so that you can use this with your early ecology learners.
Biomes: Freshwater & Seawater
Students observe organisms behavior and adaptations. In this biomes lesson plan students conduct fieldwork to determine water quality and answer questions about the differences between different habitats.
Biomes: Islands and Evolution
Students discover how islands form, how plant and animal species get there and what the term means. In this biomes lesson students prepare a presentation that describes the life forms and geography of an island.
Biome Amusement Park
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.
Biomes and Climates
Sixth graders discuss climate and trends they notice in a map of the climate zones as well as the relationship between Earth and the sun and the role it play's in a region's climate. Working in groups of four, 6th graders complete a worksheet then have a class discussion over the assignment.
Young scholars explore biomes. In this land biomes lesson, students compare and contrast organisms found in different biomes. They use TI InterActive software to create graphs containing information bout the temperature and precipitation in each specified biome.
A Population And A Biome
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.
