Product Description
This environmental science worksheet and activity is a great introduction to habitats and biomes of the world. Topics include food webs, habitats, climate, tropical rainforest, savannah, desert, steppe, chapparral, grasslands, deciduous forest, taiga, tundra, and alpine biomes.

This lesson is part of my Environmental Science: Biosphere Bundle. All 7 of these lessons are designed for a flipped classroom, but are easily adapted for any science teacher interested in a hands-on, project-based approach to learning.

This lesson is designed to facilitate independent learning and is ideal for a sub plan or simply to encourage self-instruction of basic concepts. If independent learning isn't your goal, it still fits perfectly into a teacher-directed curriculum.

Included in this product:
-Lesson plan overview for teacher with links to all content materials
-Student comprehension worksheet for biome web-quest
-Directions and template for student-created travel brochure (for a specific biome)
-Grading rubric for travel brochure
-Answer keys for web-quest

Ready to spend more time practicing concepts, doing activities and labs with your class and less time droning on about vocabulary and basic ideas? So are your students! Start flipping your classroom!

What's a flipped classroom?
In a flipped science classroom, students independently gain vocabulary and basic concepts through internet webquests and videos. Then, in a teacher-guided lab activity, students are able to practice these concepts and see them come to life in real environments.

But I don't have a flipped classroom. Can I still use this product?
Absolutely! Your students can just do the independent learning and web-quests on the first day or two, then follow with the activity/lab the following day! The independent learning days are also great for subs!

My Environmental Science Series includes lessons for each sphere of the earth:
1. Environmental Science: Atmosphere Bundle
2. Environmental Science: Biosphere Bundle
3. Environmental Science: Lithosphere Bundle
4. Environmental Science: Hydrosphere Bundle


This curriculum is ideally geared towards high school students, but is appropriate for any student looking for an independent, student-centered approach to learning. The lessons may be used as part of a complete curriculum, but they also work great for independent learners or substitute plans.

These lessons are designed to be easy to use for both students and teachers. Regardless of whether you've taught Environmental Science for years or just need a quick lesson to add to your science curriculum, this is the perfect selection.

This is a very thorough, engaging set of lessons. Your students will thank you!
