Product Description

Learning the differences between biomes, ecosystems, and habitats can be confusing; but the Biomes of the World series from Let’s Get Real makes it crystal clear with easy-to-understand definitions and a wide variety of resources, including this Biomes of the World: Activity Pack.

What’s Included:

The pack includes four activities that target identifying the five biomes and their ecosystems, including...

  • Biomes and Ecosystems, ABC order
  • Biomes and Ecosystems Crossword
  • Do You Know Biomes? labeling and fill-in-the-black
  • Where Do They Live? classifying animals and writing biome names

In addition, there are two activities for each of the five biomes.

  • Aquatic: Compound Words at the Seashore and Ocean Mystery Word (using clues to identify aquatic animals)
  • Desert: Deserts of the American Southwest (word search) and Food Chains in the Desert (craft)
  • Forest: Taiga, Temperate, or Tropical? (cut-and-glue sorting) and Be a Forest Ranger (crossword)
  • Grasslands: Serengeti Scramble (unscrambling African animal names) and Great Plains Wildflowers (cut-and-glue wildflower identification)
  • Tundra: Animals of the Tundra (puzzle) and How Does a Polar Bear Stay Warm? (science experiment)

Vocabulary Enrichment Words:

aquatic, biome, carnivore, consumer, decomposer, desert, ecosystem, forest, freshwater, grassland, herbivore, producer, saltwater, savanna, taiga, tropical, temperate, tundra

Targeted Skills:

  • Understanding and identifying characteristics of the five biomes
  • Identifying plants and animals that live in each biome
  • Building science vocabulary relating to biomes
  • Creating a food chain
  • Creating compound words
  • Spelling and alphabetizing words relating to biomes and ecosystems
  • Critical thinking skills of comparing and contrasting (analysis)
  • Critical thinking skill of drawing conclusions based on facts

Sample Pages: Please see the preview for sample activities.

Technical Info: The activities are in PDF format, illustrated with original images. All answer keys are included.

Author’s Note: If you find biomes confusing, you’re not alone. In researching this topic, I found that educational resources define biomes and ecosystems in many different ways. For this introductory look at biomes, I relied on the categories most often used in the scientific community.
