Focusing on biomes, students use the website "What's It Like Where you Live," to learn about the taiga, temperate deciduous forest, tundra, rainforest, grasslands, and desert. They explore and organize information they learn about six world biomes onto a chart.
With 4th/5th graders, I usually make this a partner activity so that students have assistance in navigating the website and finding information. I encourage them to explore and read information that may not necessarily be recorded onto the chart. This web-based research exposes students to images that help them understand and get to know different world biomes.
This download also includes a review ppt that can be used to go over information from the research and additional multiple choice questions about biomes and adaptations of organisms in the biomes.
This assignment can be paired with goes with my FREE Biome Characteristic Sorting Cards.
