Biomes and Ecosystems Research Brochure Project - this project fits on ONE PAGE! Perfect if you need to cover this topic, but need a condensed lesson unit. Use this as a guide for your own lesson or as an independent Internet research project.
This resource has been developed as a crossover lesson of language arts and science, with a little bit of history thrown in. Science teachers will find this very useful in incorporating writing across the curriculum! English teachers will find this as a fun way to add relevance to research methods. Your students will find information on important theories, discoveries, people, and terms - all the highlights that you want them to walk away with.
BONUS: EACH BROCHURE PROJECT INCLUDES AN INTERACTIVE NOTEBOOK POCKET AND RESEARCH RECORDING PAGE.
EXTEND THE LESSON: Find YouTube videos for each of the vocabulary terms and historical figures. Encourage a discussion to find the most relevant information for each topic.
This project can be completed in a few different ways. You can provide your students with the information to fill out their brochures, or have them find the information through Internet research. If your students are inexperienced with Internet research, guide them through the process by projecting a search that you lead.
You'll find this unit to be so straight-forward that you may even want to leave it in your sub folder!
