New to our website! The download version of our Introduction to the Biomes Curriculum - Elementary is the perfect place to begin biome studies by looking at the Parts of a Biome: energy from the Sun, soil, air, water, plants, and animals. With the addition of the online curriculum guide, each part can be explored with nomenclature, hands-on activities, movement, drama, and art.
Introduction to the Biome Cards provide a lesson on the eight different biomes used throughout the Waseca Biomes Curriculum: Temperate Forest, Tropical Forest, Wetlands, Grasslands, Mountains, Deserts, Polar Regions, and Ocean.
This set also includes three-part cards for the Parts of a Biome, Parts of the Globe, Layers of the Soil, Parts of the Soil, Carbon Cycle and Nitrogen Cycle. Nomenclature cards for the five classes of vertebrates, an invertebrate and a Plant are a part of this set as well. Additionally, The elementary set also includes cards our animal adaptation cards and biome q&a. As always, the masters to make booklets for children to label and color and masters for additional teacher-made materials are available for download in the A - Z PDF library here on our website.
Our Elementary cards are written on a higher reading level than the Primary set and these cards do not include the control card. This adds a level of difficulty as the definition must be matched to the picture and the label. Cards print double-sided and are coded on the back for self checking.
