3D Biomes Project

3D Biomes Project

This project is a great addition to your habitats or ecosystems unit. It can be used as a supplemental learning resource or as an alternative assessment. It includes 8 vibrantly colored biome posters in addition to the cube biome pages. Detailed step-by-step assembly instructions are also provided. This resource includes eight different biomes. When assembled, each 3-D biome cube contains four biomes. It is at the teacher’s discretion to make this an individual or group project, and whether students pick the biomes they want to work on or if they are assigned. The biome pictures contain enough details to show students the main features of each, while leaving room to draw in additional plants and animals to demonstrate an understanding of each biome. On the front of each cube side, students write a description of the biome as well as listing plants and animals found there and the locations where the biome exists. And, these finished resources will look great when displayed in your classroom! The following biomes are included: ★ Rainforest Biome ★ Grassland Biome ★ Marine Biome ★ Desert Biome ★ Freshwater Biome ★ Tundra Biome ★ Deciduous Forest Biome ★ Taiga Biome (Boreal Forest) Four biomes go on each "cube." They actually form triangular prisms, but I'm counting the air inside each where kids can add pop-up animals, modeling clay, etc. so I call them cubes. :) Enjoy! ~ SunnyDaze on TPT

Mischievous Science Misconceptions

Mischievous Science Misconceptions

This resource has 30 different misconception sheets. Each sheet has a series of statements, some of which are common misconceptions for that particular topic. Pupils can discuss the statements and decide which are true and which are the misconceptions (I get my pupil's to justify their choices). Ideal as a starter, mid-point discussion or plenary to test knowledge. Also included are card templates which correspond to the statement colours and thought bubble templates for pupils to synthesise their own statements.

Nyoongar Aboriginal Six Seasons - Kambarang

Nyoongar Aboriginal Six Seasons - Kambarang

This is an interactive investigation where the students are taken to a bushland setting in Perth Western Australia or have access to a bushland area on their school site. The students use the worksheet to guide their investigation about the Nyoongar season of Kambarang which occurs in October/November. There are several Nyoongar Six Season posters that can be purchased or found online. I purchased mine from SERCUL in Beckenham.

Inspiring Ecology - Living Things Past and Present

Inspiring Ecology - Living Things Past and Present

Developed by Dr Martin Hughes Lesson Name: Living Things Past & Present Level: Primary - Second Level – P6/7 Unit: Planet Earth – Biodiversity and Interdependence Learning Intention: I can identify and classify examples of living things, past and present, to help me appreciate their diversity. I can relate physical and behavioural characteristics to their survival or extinction. SCN 2-01a. Lesson Outline Living things on Earth have evolved over time to produce an amazing array of diverse species. Although lots of species exist today, the majority of living things on planet Earth have become extinct. It is therefore imperative to understand a number of factors that can lead to the survival or extinction of a species. Before we do this however, it is important to recognise how we classify animals into different groups based on similar characteristics. We can classify most living things into seven major groups - mammals, reptiles, birds, insects, fish, amphibians and plants. Once this has been established we can begin to examine the physical characteristics (fur type, fur colours, endotherm or ectotherm etc) and behavioural characteristics (diurnal, nocturnal, burrowers, pack or lone hunters etc) that contribute to an animal’s survival or may lead to an animal’s extinction. This complete lesson package includes a Teacher’s Guide; PowerPoint presentation; Student Handouts, Glossary of Terms and additional sources of information which may be useful to enhance your lesson.
