The world around us is an amazing place with a fascinating variety of environments and organisms.
 
YOUR TASK:  Groups will create the Mural and Interactive Activity for the upcoming Biome Stations.  This site will help you prepare these materials with tips and research resources on the plants, animals, and other organisms that are found living in your assigned biome.
 
 

SCIENCE STANDARD

S7L4  Students will examine the dependence of organisms on one another and their environments.  

e. Describe the characteristics of Earth's major terrestrial biomes (i.e. tropical rain forest, savannah, temperate, desert, taiga, tundra, and mountains) and aquatic communities (i.e. freshwater, estuaries, and marine).

 

INFORMATION SKILLS

2.1.1  Continue an inquiry-based research process by applying critical-thinking skills (analysis,

           synthesis,  evaluation, organization) to information and knowledge in order to construct

           new understandings, draw conclusions, and create new knowledge.

2.2.1  Demonstrate flexibility in the use of resources by adapting information strategies to each

           specific

           resource and by seeking additional resource when clear conclusions cannot be drawn.

2.1.6  Use the writing process, media and visual literacy, and technology skills to create products

          that express new understandings.
