This project-based group learning packet takes students through the steps of researching a biome (desert, tundra, coniferous forest, deciduous forest, grassland, or rainforest). They will research animals and plants within the biome, and how they survive. Using this information, they can then make a PowerPoint to present what they've learned.
This follows the Ohio Academic Standards for Science, particularly grade 3. It includes all of the standards it covers (including ESL standards and ELA standards) and has a rubric to assess throughout the WHOLE project!!
I used it last year with my students, and they LOVED it!
