Ecology is one of the "must-teach" topics for any biology or life science class. What would a good biology class be without a strong unit (or units!) in Ecology? This colorful and visually appealing PowerPoint may be just what you need to spice up your ecology lessons. Our students are the decision makers of tomorrow. It is imperative that we give them the ecological knowledge (global warming, greenhouse effect, habitat destruction) they need so that they can make informed decisions about our future.

This PowerPoint is called "Biomes of the World". It consists of 94 slides that are colorful, informative and visually stimulating. Pictures and diagrams are included that will greatly enhance your instruction to your students. Graphics, diagrams, clip art, and photographs were chosen to capture the attention of the student as the lesson is being taught. Students will use the outline as the PowerPoint is being presented and will fill in the notes as the lesson is being taught. I always include both the Word document and a pdf of the notes.

Topics covered in this lesson are:

  • Biomes: Definition of biome, adaptations of organisms to a biome, tolerance levels of organisms.
