Wed Sep 23rd

General Plan:

  1. Today we will be researching Biomes (in groups of no larger than 3 students per biome),
  2. Groups will be required to complete the following (in order):
    • Choose group members (no more than 3 students per group) and a Biome to research
    • Use the Missouri Botanical Garden link (or other web or textbook resources) to research the biome
    • Enter the results in an online information collection form (one entry per group)
    • Create a gallery walk poster (one poster per group) with the required information: (biome description, location, 2 facts, 2 plants, 2 animals)
    • Use the results matrix form to collect information from other groups (every student completes their own results matrix!)
Links and Tasks for today: (save to your desktop before opening!)
Additional Information:
  • What is a Biome? A biome is a large geographical area of distinctive plant and animal groups, which are adapted to that particular environment. The climate and geography of a region determines what type of biome can exist in that region.
  • Everything you need for today’s activity can be found at the Missouri Botanical Garden’s Biomes information research link; however, here are some additional related links in case you would like to learn more:
