In this four-week unit, students explore biomes around the world and investigate further a specific biome and country within the biome they choose. The unit includes discovery activities to understand human population trends and statistics, natural resources and how they are used, common diseases and natural disasters in specific regions of the world, thermodynamics and home construction in different parts of the world, and biome characteristics. The culminating activity is a biome showcase; an opportunity for the students to present their work to adults and students in the class.

I really like how so many different aspects of biomes are explored. The learning experiences are much more developed than in the more "typical" biome units I have run across.
