PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a three part project on biomes. I introduce one part to the students at a time. The class is broken into six groups and each group is given a different biome (taiga, grassland, desert, tundra, tropical rainforest or temperate forest). They start by researching about the biomes' temperature, plants, animals, food webs, etc. Once they have this information, they will create their biome. The classroom will be divided into six sections. Each section will have one long piece of butcher paper taped to the wall and/or cabinets. Using their information and resources, students will show me their information through visuals. For example, if they have rainforest, they would draw/create things like toucans, tall trees, layers of trees, anteaters, etc. In part three, each group receives a letter from their nemesis who has caused their plane to malfunction and crash. They're okay but their location is unknown and most of their supplies have been destroyed. They will brainstorm how to build shelter, hunt for food, find drinkable water, etc., by "using" only the resources drawn/created on their biome.

This activity allows students to research, create a visual work and then find meaning in their work by pretending to use the resources they drew to survive.
