Are you teaching environments? Are you overwhelmed and don't know where to start? I love teaching biomes because it is an organized way to teach kids about the environments of the world.
This bundle includes both my reading passages and sorting cards.
There are seven reading passages that teach students the definition of biome, the characteristics of each biome, and some adaptations animals and plants have developed within each biome. There are also two notes pages. One for students to record notes about one biome, and the other for recording information about four biomes. It is designed as a jigsaw activity for small reading groups.
The sorting cards have title cards for seven biomes, description cards, environment pictures, animal pictures, and plant pictures.
-freshwater aquatic biome
-56 picture cards
