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 Two takes you through the last four biomes, one at a time (Grasslands, Deserts, Forests, and Rainforests).
Where is it located? What are the important characteristics?
Which animals live there?
What do animals need to survive in this environment?
It also includes:
PICTORIAL DIAGRAMS of animals with labels that load one at a time to support your presentation.
LINKS, to short videos that support the topic or Google Maps and Webcams to show the location of the habitat.
A TOUR OF BIOMES, Washington State contains all seven types of habitats. This is a good review of the biomes and brings them closer to home.
CULMINATING ACTIVITIES: Slides to support the Writing Projects and the culminating activities for the end of the unit.
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 One! This Powerpoint was originally a Keynote presentation, so the conversion may change some of the fonts or formatting.
