PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is an inductive Biomes unit. This unit comes with:

*Objectives slide (2 objectives)

*Home Group Slide (5 groups of 5-6 kids each--EDITABLE using Group/Ungroup Tool)

*Expert Group Slide (5 groups of 5-6 kids each--EDITABLE using Group/Ungroup Tool)

*Tasks Slides (8 different tasks from simple to complex with sentence frames and task descriptions.)

*Quiz Slide

*Wrap-Up Slide (close the unit and discuss Biomes)

MATERIALS NEEDED:

In order to teach this unit with success you will need the following materials:

*5 Pieces of Chart paper for each Expert Groups to act as a "sort mat." They will record their findings on the chart paper. I chose to break it into a four square (similar, not similar, explanation of what they have in common, explanation of uncommon things) as well as room for a title and student names.

*Color photos (3x5) for each biome. You will need 6 similar photos and 2 dissimilar photos. For example, for the Tundra group give them 6 photos of plants/animals that live in the Tundra with similar backgrounds, and 2 plants/animals that couldn't possibly live in the Tundra.

You will need to do this for each Biome (Desert, Tundra, Ocean, Forest, and Grasslands.)

*Graphic organizer so students can take notes to take back to their Home groups when they teach.

*Quiz, which can be found for FREE! in my shop :-)

This unit from start to finish takes approximately 1-1.5 weeks. Each lesson takes approximately 25-40 minutes.
