Find Biome educational ideas and activities
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.
Examine how climate and landforms affect plants and animals that live in particular areas. Discover that these same factors affect peoples' homes, jobs, and recreational activities. Pupils research ecosystems and biomes, and then write and illustrate a book detailing what they learned.
Students explore, experience and experiment identifying the human impact on the environment of vegetative differences within the same biome. They assess what causes deserts, rain forests, savannahs, tundras and saguaros and how these changes effect a plant and animals survival.
Students explore South America. In this South American lesson, students use their geography skills to create population, terrain, biomes/vegetation, and major exports maps. Students present their finished maps to their classmates and discuss how maps allow users to learn about places.
Learners 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.
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.
