New! Biomes of the World
4th - 5th
For this biomes worksheet, learners read an article on biomes and answer 10 multiple choice, short answer or true and false questions relating to 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.
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.
Biomes of the World (and Canada)
Students explore environments by analyzing food chains. In this biome identification lesson, 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.
Monster Plants Storia Teaching Guide
Who wouldn't want to read a book about monster plants? Get those kids into informational texts with an engaging topic, like meat eating plants! You'll use the teaching guide to provide structured practice as your class reads to comprehend. They'll make predictions, preview vocabulary, define cause and effect, and engage in small and full group discussions. Everything needed for instruction is included in this well-constructed resource.
The Important Role of Biomes
Travel the world from the comfort of your classroom with this unit on the Earth's biomes.
Why Does the Cocoa Tree Need a Tropical Rainforest to Grow?
Fourth graders explore the requirements a cocoa plant needs to survive. They research where chocolate comes from and how humans can affect the growth of cocoa trees. Students create a 3-D model of a cocoa tree and compare and contrast cocoa trees with trees grown locally.
Rainforest Complexity and Diversity
Second graders investigate the diversity of plants and animals in a rainforest. They watch an online story developed by the Rainforest Alliance, observe and record animals in their local area, explore various websites, and compare and contrast a chart that illustrates the diversity of their local area and a rainforest.
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.
Take a Tour of a Biome
Students study five different biome types including aquatic, desert, forest, grassland, and tundra. They create a travel website of a simulated trip to one of the biomes.
Take a Tour of a Biome
Explore the five biomes: aquatic, desert, forest, grassland and tundra by using online resources to investigate one of the five biomes and use MediaBlender to create an informational web site for a tour of that biome. Note: Other software applications can be substituted.
