The Introduction to the Biomes Curriculum - Elementary begins biome studies for elementary classrooms by looking at the Parts of a Biome: energy from the Sun, soil, air, water, plants, animals, the carbon cycle, and the nitrogen cycle. Each part is explored with nomenclature, hands-on activities, movement, drama, and art. Introduction to the Biome Cards provide a first lesson on the eight different biomes used throughout the Waseca Biomes Curriculum: Temperate Forest, Tropical Forest, Wetlands, Grasslands, Mountains, Deserts, Polar Regions, and Ocean.
The Introduction to the Biomes Curriculum - Elementary includes the Waseca Biomes Curriculum Guide, three-part cards for the Parts of a Biome, three-part cards for The Biomes, Animal Adaptations cards, Q & A cards, Biome Picture Sort labels, Climate Zones labels, Living or Nonliving labels, and Herbivore, Carnivore, or Omnivore labels. Masters to make booklets for children to label and color and masters for additional teacher-made materials are available for download from the A - Z PDF library on our website.
