Arranged as an interactive lesson, this presentation focuses on the six world biomes. Upcoming biologists click on a specific biome and a slide lists its location, description, native plants, and animals. A quiz provides learners with factors, and they identify the biome. If you do not have computers available for individuals or small groups, this presentation also works as a note-taking and lecture guide.
Learners view a PowerPoint presentation on biomes and their classifications. Divide them into groups and assign them each an individual biome to research. There are pictures of the PowerPoint slides and notes about what to teach for each, but a direct link to the presentation is not provided. Take the time to find it on the Internet because it is an excellent support to the lesson.
Students use a map to indicate the locations of the different biomes in the world. In this terrestrial biomes lesson plan, students discuss the plants and animals adapted to live in each biome. 
Students explore biomes.  In this exploring biomes lesson students collect information about different biomes by watching a movie and doing a web activity. 
Learners describe the different types of biomes. In this biology lesson, students create a map of assigned biome with descriptive paragraphs. They share their findings to class.
Students explore environments by analyzing food chains. In this biome identification lesson, students define a list of environmental vocabulary terms such as tundra, rain-forest and desert. Students create a fictional self sustainable food chain that is built on one specific biome or environmental setting.
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.
Fifth graders investigate biomes of the earth. In this biomes lesson, 5th graders explore eight different biomes which include the tropical rain forest, deciduous forest, grasslands, and taiga. They design an artistic scrapbook that shows the characteristics of their assigned biome which they research using the Internet and books.
Seventh graders design four biomes models and plant three types of seeds in them to observe growth. In groups for each type of biome, they predict the seeds' growth in each of the settings. Students follow the conditions on a biome chart and observe for two weeks, noting which seeds did the best in particular biomes.
Students study five different biome types including aquatic, desert, forest, grassland, and tundra. They create a travel website of a simulated trip to one of the biomes.
Explore the five biomes: aquatic, desert, forest, grassland and tundra by using online resources to investigate one of the five biomes and use MediaBlender to create an informational web site for a tour of that biome. Note: Other software applications can be substituted.
Fifth graders, in groups, list the physical characteristics of a biome and think of ways in which animals might have to adapt to live there and make a biome mobile ball that show the different types of habitats that shape the praire biome.
Seventh graders research about the climate and weather in different biome types. In this biology lesson, 7th graders create a brochure of their chosen biome using Microsoft Publisher. They present their work in class.
In this Science worksheet, students color a biome map of North America. Students color the map by solving the clues listed on a separate sheet of paper.
Students explore the worlds biomes and see how organisms adapt to these ecological communities.  In this world's biomes lesson students research and write a paper about one of the world's biomes. 
In this biomes instructional activity, students read an article on biomes and answer 10 multiple choice, short answer or true and false questions relating to biomes.
Students participate in a three part unit about biomes. Part one, students research the biomes of North America and part two consists of research on zoos and a field trip to a zoo. While part three ties together the first two when students design a section of a zoo to be built in South Africa displaying animals from North America.
Students research, present, and compare information about the features of seven biomes that exist in the U.S. They view and discuss the images on the Arkansas state quarter, conduct research on the biomes, and create a poster of the climate in the biome.
Can you guess the largest biome in the world? It's the taiga, making up almost 30% of the world's forest cover! Use this video to explore both the taiga and the tundra biomes, and take a look into one of the world's greatest phenomenons: the northern lights.
Students examine the weather conditions of the various biomes on a world map. In this geographical weather lesson, students identify the seven biomes and color each biome a specific color. Students view a list of the average temperature and precipitation for each biome.
