Europe Biome Cards-Elementary
This product is currently sold out.
Europe was once primarily temperate forests, but now, larger herbivores and carnivores are scarce, after more than a thousand years of human populations. Polar regions and the Alps make up most of the wilderness. Many wetlands are coastal or are characterized by mossy bogs. The people of Amsterdam live in a reclaimed wetland. People of the Black Forest have a unique cultural heritage, as do the Basque of the mountains. Rural people of the Ukraine farm the grasslands. The Saami are an interesting indigenous people who have retained their connection to the land and the reindeer.
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)
