Other Buyers Have Said:

"I love that my students are practicing their reading skills and learning science at the same time. Great activity!" (Thank you, The Elated Educator!)

"This is probably one of my favorite biome packs that I have found. I love that you include the non-fiction passages. Most products I have come across have activities, but no passages or information." (Thank you, Melissa Preston!)

"My students loved this activity and it spawned very interesting conversations especially the facts about how much rainforest is cut down in a day." (Thank you, Ashley D.!)

Final Notes:

While I recommend printing in color and laminating materials for future use, it is not necessary. These materials print just fine in grayscale.
