Product Description

This fun, hands-on activity was created to cover the common biomes of the Earth. In this resource you will find half sheets that describe each biome, including fun facts! To use, just simply print them out, cut them in half, and laminate if desired. Then either place them in a center for independent use or have students do them in partners. If desired, you could hang them around the room to use in a carousel fashion, or use them in small guided groups to teaching reading and science all in one! These cards come with two different types of question sheets. The first set of questions highlights each biome and requires students to read the card in order to answer the question. The second set of questions bring a bit more of a challenge. These are riddles that require students to read all of the cards and determine which biome it is describing. Both activities are a great way to practice reading skills while still learning science.

About the Seller

I graduated in 2004 with a Bachelors in Science degree and an elementary education certificate. I am certified to teach K-8 Self-Contained and Middle School Science. I have taught ever since graduation,with most of my experience in 5th grade. I'm currently completing my Masters program in Differentiation.  I utilize a lot of differentiated strategies along with the workshop model in reading, writing, math, and sometimes science. I love more hands-on activities that are related to real life for students to explore. I'm not a huge fan of worksheets, but do use them occasionally.
