This link has a great breakdown by precip and temp for biomes. Use it to decide which biome your's fits into best.
Use the Colorado Phet Lab "Natural Selection" to answer the questions on the worksheet.
You may print out the worksheet and fill in the answers, or fill in the answers on the computer and then print out the worksheet.
Either way you will need to turn in the completed worksheet.
When you are done, check out this game!
To research the climate in your local area go to
Find the data for temperature and for rainfall.
1. Copy and paste these into excel.
2. Use this data to create 2 graphs. Add titles and side labels.
3. AFTER checking with me, Print your graphs.
4. Compare your graphs to those in your book on pages 112-116
5. Use http://www.ucmp.berkeley.edu/exhibits/biomes/deserts.php to further research deserts and decide which type of biome you think we belong to.
If you finish early, Use .....
Maps of the world based on precipitation and temperature
To divide the map I have inot 5-8 distinct biomes.
