This resource contains six non-fiction texts about biomes of the United States. It was made for the NGSS 3-LS2 Ecosystems: Interactions, Energy, and Dynamics.
It covers the following biomes:
The passages were written with third graders in mind, but the information is very interesting and would be useful for upper grades as well. Some passages are shorter than others and have less complex language so that you can easily differentiate for students.
There is a tips sheet for teachers and a recording sheet for students on which they can note where the biome is found, the average annual precipitation, the average temperature, and plants and animals of the biome. Students respond to a question asking if they would like to live and that biome and tell why or why not.
