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.
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. Each child will need access to a computer or tablet to make their presentation, or they could work in pairs. Each group (or individual) will present their biome information to the class.
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.
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. Take the time to find it on the Internet because it is an excellent support to the lesson.
Biome Exchange - Send the "Stuff" Not The Kids
Young scholars 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.
Exploring Biomes Lesson 3: Endangered Biomes
Future environmental scientists compare data from two different conservation strategies. Alone this lesson is sufficient, but as part of the Exploring Biomes unit produced by the Arizona Fish and Game Department, it becomes top-notch.
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.
Pupils explore biomes. In this exploring biomes lesson students collect information about different biomes by watching a movie and doing a web activity.
North American Biomes
For 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.
Biomes of the World (and Canada)
Students explore environments by analyzing food chains. In this biome identification lesson plan, 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.
Praire Biome Models
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.
Exploring the Temperate Forest: Biodiversity and Interdependence
Learners examine the consequences of cutting down large amounts of forests throughout the world. In groups, they use the internet to complete a module taking them on a tour through different temperate forests. To end the lesson, they research the problems animals face after their homelands are cut down.
Tenth graders research locations of biomes and their barriers. In this biomes lesson, 10th graders examine location, environmental conditions, and species of plants and animals that live in the biome. Students take notes and create a poster or product to share with their peers.
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.
Elements of Biology: Biomes
Students 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.
In this biomes activity, students color the map of North America according to the biome clues. Students then answer questions about the North American biomes.
Biomes -- Part II
Students use the internet to gather information on the biomes of the world. They identify the climate and unique characteristics of each biome along with any threat to them. They create their own campaign to preserve wildlife.
Hands On Biodiversity: Networking Students and Their Biomes
Students telecommunicate and use the US Mail to network students from five biomes in the United States in order to monitor water quality in each area. They have e-mail pals and exchange materials representative of themselves and their environment.
Unique Plants of the Biomes
Students examine how the earth is divided into different biomes that are characterized by a distinctive climate. In this earth's surface instructional activity students identify adaptations of plants in specific biomes.
Biome-Ecology Unit with a "Design a Zoo" Extension
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.
