The preview will tell you why is in the unit bundle with the syllabus. Topics include how rainfall, temperature and other parameters of climate affect the development of unique biomes. PowerPoints illustrate deserts, mountains, grasslands, forestry biomes. Students will produce graphs, use geometry to calculate tree heights, produce a leaf collection in a Dendrology lab, conduct field research and finally use the scientific method to create their own environmental project.
This is part of a series of bundled units that I have developed over years of honing these topics to cover standards, while keeping students engaged in class. I hope these complete resources will help lighten the load for busy teachers who want to be the best for their students.
