Exploring Biomes Lesson 2: Biome Research
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.
6th - 10th Science
Where in the world is the equator? Explore a world map with your class, coloring in oceans, continents, and rainforests while locating the three major lines of latitude: the equator, Tropic of Cancer, and Tropic of Capricorn. Discuss how the tropical belt is where the sun's energy is focused, allowing for the growth of rainforests.
K - 4th Science CCSS: Adaptable
Terrestrial Ecosystem Response to Climate Change
An extensive investigation of the Earth's climate changes awaits your environmental science classes. This top-notch presentation begins by looking at the history of Earth's climate and then predicts the impact on each major terrestrial biome.
9th - Higher Ed Science
Biome Exchange - Send the "Stuff" Not The Kids
Learners exchange ecological information with students from different geographic biomes. They box up the "unique ecologically significant features" of their area, send the box to another class in another area and then receive a similar presentation from them.
4th - 12th Science
Adaptations to Environments with Mammals
Fifth graders, after viewing a PowerPoint on different mammals, analyze what a biome is. Then they choose a mammal to research and go outside to feel the grass and leaves and hypothesize about which biome they live in as well as its habitat, appearance and survival.
Nature, Red in Tooth and Claw
Students explore the science and art of taxidermy, and research various biomes that could be depicted in museum displays. They synthesize their knowledge by creating dioramas that depict the diverse life forms typical of these biomes.
6th - 12th Social Studies & History
Scrapping the Biomes
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.
A Population and a Biome
How does the availability of resources affect a population? Eager ecologists explore the answer through a multi-generation population simulation game, collecting and analyzing data, then researching a biome. The end products are an Excel graph of data and a PowerPoint presentation about a particular biome.
6th - 8th Science CCSS: Designed
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.
3rd - 5th Science
