My name is Wendy Hobbs and I am an artist who has spent several years working as an HLTA. I was responsible for the art provision across the whole school, covering the full primary range, working closely with teachers to provide PPA cover to blend with their teaching. I am currently home educating my Yr6 child and many of the worksheets have been developed as part of the work we are doing. Are there any that would enhance your school or home classroom experience?

Biome/Habitat Worksheets

(0)
A set of 5 printable worksheets featuring Polar, Tropical, Temperate, Desert and Ocean biomes/ habitats, which students can fill in to describe their key features, as part of a study on habitat and environment. Each sheet has separate spaces to record descriptions of the non living features of a biome, its animal life, plant life and where in the world it is found, including a small globe to visually represent this. The sheets can be used individually for specific habitats or as a set to enable comparison of different habitats. The hand drawn header shows a selection of living and non living features for each biome. These can provide information for the student but also provide a fun element as they spot and name different animals. The pictures are designed to be coloured in and so can provide a handy activity for early finishers. These sheets provide an interesting way for students to record information within this topic and will hopefully provide a useful addition to your teaching.
