Tundra: The Icy Biome

By Christian W.

Block 7

where in the world are we
“Where in the world are we?”
  • Northern Canada
  • Islands west of Greenland
  • Northern Europe
  • Antartica
tempeture and weather
Tempeture and Weather
  • It can get as low as 7 degrees and rains up to 12.5 inches of snow a month! Wow, that’s a lot!
  • There are three different types of land forms in the tundra that I found out about:
  • Iceburgs
  • Mountains
  • Snowdrifts
polar bears
Polar Bears
  • Polar bears live along shores and on sea ice in the icy cold Arctic. In fall pregnant polar bears make dens in earth and snow banks, where they’ll stay through the winter and give birth to one to three cubs. Polar bears primarily eat seals.Their white coats are very valuable.
  • Emperors clump together in huge, huddled masses. They take turns moving to the inside of the group, where they’re protected from the icy cold temperatures and wind. As the young penguins grow, adults leave them in groups of chicks called crèches while they leave to fish.
  • Orcas hunt everything from fish to walruses—seals, sea lions, penguins, squid, sea turtles, sharks, and even other kinds of whales.Average-sized orcas may eat about 500 pounds (227 kilograms) of food a day. Orcas’ teeth are shaped for ripping and tearing prey. They are also called killer whales.
  • A lichen looks like one plant but is made up of two different kinds of plants - algae and fungi. Some look like a crust growing on rocks and trees. Some look like little bushy plants and others hang from the trees. Many animals depend on lichens for food.
cloud berry
Cloud Berry
  • Another plant found in the arctic is the cloud berry. It is a flower with five white pedals and one berry per stalk. The fruit on it is red when not ripe, when it is ripe it is soft and orange. The plant has large green leaves. You can find it in most parts of the arctic.
pasque flower
Pasque Flower
  • The Pasque flower has several stems that rise inches off the ground. On each stem is one flower with 5 petals. In the center of the flower is yellow. Below the flower, around the stem is a leaf covered in hairs, as is the rest of the plant. The fruit juices are made into a drop of liquid that help with the eye.
tour de biome questions
“Tour De Biome Questions”
  • “Do all tundra’s have mountains?”Maybe, but unlikely. It all matters by how much precipitation. The rock would just erode away.
  • “Why is the sky cleaner there than here?” Because there isn’t a lot of polluting machines there.
how does water play into my biome
“How Does Water Play Into My Biome?”
  • Water is part of my biome because it is what the ice, glaciers,ice- burgs, and ice- caps are made out of.
