Exploring Temperate Forests!

Introduction

Introduction

The local museum needs your help!! They are creating a new exhibit about biomes around the world. Our class has been asked to create a display for the temperate forest biome. We need to find out as much information as we can about this topic including where these forests are located and what characteristics they have!


Exploring temperate forests

Task

  • Locate temperate forests in the world.

  • Describe the characteristics of three different type of temperate forests.

    • Characteristics include: climate, plant life and animal life.

  • Use these descriptions to create models of the displays to be used in the museum.


Process step 1

Process- Step 1

  • As a class we will define what a temperate forest is and identify three types of temperate forests. We will include this basic information on a poster for the entrance of our display.

  • We will then locate where temperate forests are in the world and create our own map to reflect real-life. This map will also be used as an introduction to the display.


Process step 2

Process- Step 2

  • You will be divided into groups of 5. Each group will research temperate “deciduous” forests.

  • You need to define what it is and identify plants and animals that can be found in this type of temperate forest.

  • Draw a display for a temperate deciduous forest. Use pictures of plants and animals from this region to make your display easier to visualize.


Process step 3

Process- Step 3

  • Working your groups from Step 2, each group will research temperate “coniferous” forests.

  • You need to define what it is and identify plants and animals that can be found in this type of temperate forest.

  • Draw a display for a temperate coniferous forest. Use pictures of plants and animals from this region to make your display easier to visualize.


Process step 4

Process- Step 4

  • Working with the same group, each group will research temperate “rain” forests.

  • You need to define what it is and identify plants and animals that can be found in this type of temperate forest.

  • Draw a display for a temperate rainforest. Use pictures of plants and animals from this region to make your display easier to visualize.


Process step 5

Process- Step 5

  • Each group will present their 3 mini-displays. Do your best to convince us yours is the best!

  • The class will vote on their favorite in each category (deciduous forests, coniferous forests, temperate rainforests).


Process step 6

Process- Step 6

  • Using the winning designs, we will present our plan for the display to the museum curators.

Conclusion

Congratulations! You’ve helped create the Temperate Forest display at the museum and we’ll be seeing it brought to life soon! In the process, you’ve learned a lot about many temperate forests.

What was your favorite part of this project? Which temperate forest biome is your favorite?
