South America Biome Cards
This product is currently sold out.
South America contains the rich diversity of the Amazon, including the Pantanal, the largest wetland in the world; the spectacular heights of the Andes; and the driest of deserts in the Atacama. Indigenous tribes include the Yanonami of the tropical forest and the Quechua of the mountains. People in cities of the temperate forests along the southwest coast, and rural peoples of the wetlands and grasslands called the pampas give a realistic impression of the population.
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:
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)
