Option 2: Split the class into groups and assign each group one biome to read about. (give them the informational sheet about their biome) Have them do research about their biome and then make a poster to report to the class. Have the other students take notes on the student recording sheets while other groups are presenting.
Option 3: Split the class into groups and give them all of the informational biome sheets and fill in the recording sheet together. Have the internet available to do any extra research to answer the questions.
After your students have learned about each biome, print out the biome cards and pass one card out to each student. Print out the biome posters and place them around the room. Each student will read their card out loud to the class and then go to the biome they think they belong in.
