Antarctica Biome Cards
This product is currently sold out.
This continent contains only one biome: the polar regions of the south pole. Students can deduce why we find no examples of amphibian or reptile species there. The people are international scientists who meet their basic needs in this harsh environment with care.
Designed for elementary classes, this material covers all the biomes found on a particular continent and offers a structure for independent research. Three-part cards include: a description card for older readers, an illustrated picture card and a label. Each biome is explored with cards for these examples:
Mammal, Bird, Reptile, Amphibian, Fish, Invertebrate, Plant.
People, Food, Clothing, Shelter, Transportation, Culture.
All three cards are printed with coding on the backside for continent, biome and the classifications identified above. Animal cards are chosen for their interesting environmental adaptations. Indigenous, rural and urban cultures are explored for a realistic view of people on the continent. A teacher’s manual outlines lesson presentations and offers ideas for extensions. A black-line biome map and masters of the illustrations are also included. All sets are cut and ready to laminate. (6 to 12 years)
