BIOMES


In Term 2 we will be studies the Earth's Land Biomes.
We will be working in groups of 4 or 5 to research a particular biome.
After your research you will create a project to teach your classmates about the critical issues surrounding your biome.

Each member of the group will research a particular area of your biome.
Areas include:
Animals, plants, physical landscape and human influences.

You will provide background information, examples with picures/illustrations/maps and 2 questions that can be answered from your research.

Each group will present their findings to the class in a format chosen by the group.
