Kids love animals! You'll have no problem motivating your students to study this topic! They can't wait for the next lesson!
This detailed Powerpoint presentation will support your teaching about animals who live in the seven major biomes of the world.
It includes hundreds of vivid photos of animals and habitats. The text is descriptive and appropriate for young children to read. Each new topic includes links to short videos that make the learning come alive. It's easy to use and your students will remain engaged as you present new content.
Part One includes lessons in the following:

Which animals live there?

NOTE: This Powerpoint comes in two parts. TPT restricts the file size to 200 Mb so I had to split it. Make sure you get Part Two! It was originally a Keynote presentation, so the conversion to powerpoint may change some of the fonts or formatting.
There are many materials available to go along with this presentation:
STUDENT JOURNAL, containing pages of text with supporting questions that go along with each Keynote lesson topic. Ready to print and use.
GLOSSARY, to support the learning of key vocabulary.
PICTURE FILES, (Both animals and biomes), to see animals and biomes up close and personal.
WRITING PROJECTS, narrative, persuasive, and informative writing assignments to go along with everything kids are learning in this unit.
