Students exchange information with students from various geographic biomes. They explore the unique ecologically significant features of the biomes and share with other students.
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.
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. Information included is comprehensive, easy to read, and includes an array of colorful graphs, diagrams, and photos that bring this urgent topic to life. 
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.
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.
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 study biomes and their major characteristics.  In this biomes lesson students draw a climatogram and discuss climate of a specific area. 
Eighth graders compare their local ecological zone to the tropical rainforest. In this natural ecology lesson, 8th graders complete an activity about the differences in ecological zones. They compare their biome to the Guatemalan rainforest.
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 work in teams to characterize their biomes and compare them to the biomes of the rest of the class. In this biomes lesson plan, students complete a bean activity, relate it to the diversity in biomes, and then research and categorize their biome.
Students examine the characteristics of different biomes. In this ecology lesson, students design biomes where given animals can live. They discuss the design within the group and share it with the class.
Sixth graders participate in a unit on ecosystems using the Microsoft programs Excel and PowerPoint. They study the skills necessary to show data on Microsoft Excel and PowerPoint.
Students research different biomes, using links from global pen pal letters.
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. Most appropriate for third and fourth graders, use this as a great introduction to a unit on climates and biomes.
Students 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.
Learners 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.
Students examine how seasonal changes affect life in a forest ecosystem.  For this ecosystem lesson students complete a lab activity to see how organisms are dependent on each other for nutrition. 
Sixth graders explore different climates. In this compare and contrast lesson, 6th graders look at the differences in climates of America and Europe. Students use KWL charts and graphic organizers to record information about different climates.
Students, in groups, research two biomes. They create a Venn diagram and include the characteristics of each biome, placing similar features in the overlapping area of the circles.
In this community distribution worksheet, students will review 5 terms associated with biomes, ecosystems, and communities. Students will then match 11 terms as either relating to marine biomes or land biomes. This worksheet has 5 fill in the blank and 11 matching questions.
