The Download Version: Introduction to the Biomes Curriculum–Primary 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 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.
This set also includes three-part cards for the Parts of a Biome, Parts of the Globe, Layers of the Soil, and Parts of the Soil. Nomenclature cards for the five classes of vertebrates, an invertebrate, and a plant are a part of this set as well. As always, both masters to make booklets for children to label and color and masters for additional, teacher-made materials are available to download in the A–Z PDF library here on our website.
Our primary cards include the larger control card and are written on a lower reading level than the elementary set. Cards print double-sided and are coded on the back for self-checking.
