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 examine the weather conditions of the various biomes on a world map. In this geographical weather lesson plan, 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.
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. In the end, 5th graders create a PowerPoint about the mammal they have chosen.
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.
