The Earth's Land Biomes
Sixth graders learn location and the characteristics of six major land biomes. They, in groups, conduct computer research on a specific biome. They create brochures encouraging people to buy property that is part of that biome.
Biomes: Google Presentations
Students research different biomes and their habitats, locations on a map, human interruptions, climate, and more. In this biomes lesson plan, students submit their presentations in groups and on Google.
Students research different biomes and find its climate and what plants and animals that can be found in them. In this biomes lesson students search the Internet for their information and fill out a biome chart.
Our Trip Around the Biomes
Students describe the six land biomes of the world and compare and contrast the different biomes. They study the characteristics of biomes including animals, plants, temperatures, etc. They create a slideshow presentation to help the zoo improve animal habitats.
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. Information included is comprehensive, easy to read, and includes an array of colorful graphs, diagrams, and photos that bring this urgent topic to life.
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. In the end, 5th graders create a PowerPoint about the mammal they have chosen.
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.
Biomes: Forests & Seeds
Students examine how seasonal changes affect life in a forest ecosystem. In this ecosystem instructional activity students complete a lab activity to see how organisms are dependent on each other for nutrition.
Biomes Summary-Temperature, Precipitation, and Location
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.
Biome Exchange: Send the Stuff Not The Kids
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 study biomes and their major characteristics. In this biomes lesson students draw a climatogram and discuss climate of a specific area.
Happy in My Habitat
Fourth graders create animal habitats and explain the biomes they live in. In this habitat lesson, 4th graders recognize the basic needs of animals, characteristics of animals differences and places where they live. Students complete sheets on the habitats they study.
Students identify the biomes of the Earth and their characteristics. They discuss their favorite seasons and the weather. They share their favorites with the class.
Students learn about different types of forests-temperate deciduous forests, temperate evergreen forests, and tropical rain forests. Students will concentrate on the tropical rain forest and learn about explorer Michael Fay's Congo Trek through the African rain forest.
Guetemala's Changing Forest
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.
Oh What A Tangled Web We Weave
Learners collect data on consumers, producers and decomposers of a biome of their choice. They create a list of organisms that live in the forest and then research them to find out more information. They connect their information to create a food web.
The Formation and Value of Temperate Grasslands
Students get an overview of the climate and organisms of the North American Prairie. After a lecture, and watching some videos imbedded in this plan, students compile research data on the North American Prairie.
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.
The Formation and Value of Temperate Grasslands
Students study the Temperate Grasslands biome of North America. They explain that it is an endangered ecosystem because the rich soils have been converted to farming in most areas. They view videos imbedded in this plan, then complete biome maps.
Patterns Within the Earth's Systems
Tenth graders explore climate and weather patterns associated with biomes and certain geologic locations and features. Students engage in a trivia search, a jig saw activity, mapping and charting weather systems.
