  • SC.O.3.1.6 Support statements with facts found through research from various sources, including technology.

  • SC.O.3.1.7 Use scientific instruments, technology, and everyday materials to investigate the natural world

On the board I will place a landscape picture of each biome and the students will place their animal pictures under the biome they think it belongs. Once everyone is finished, we will go over each animal together, making any corrections. We will also hold a discussion of what the students think the weather consists of for each biome.

  • I will then show the video at[channel]=biomes,discussing each biome to the students to wrap up the lesson for the day.

  • Day 2: DESERT

  • Present powerpoint of subtopics. Discuss as a class.
