This fun and engaging web activity uses the Build a Biome website by Switch Zoo to guide students through constructing the different parts of the biomes. Students will discover the location, types of plants, animals, rainfall and seasons of each of these different biomes: tundra, taiga, rainforest, grasslands, and deserts.
This web activity is a great alternative to direct lecture about the different biomes. It allows students to go at their own pace and to use critical thinking skills to determine what fits into each biome. I have also had great success using this as a sub plan during my biomes unit.
