Biomes and Ecosystems

In our Biomes and Ecosystems lesson plan, students learn about what biomes and ecosystems are and how they are different. Students also learn about specific types of both biomes and ecosystems and their characteristics.

Categories: , Tags: , ,

Our Biomes and Ecosystems lesson plan discusses the difference between an ecosystem and biome but also introduces students to the connections between the two components of the environment. The lesson also introduces students to the various interactions within an ecosystem. During this lesson, students are asked to work with a partner for an activity in which they visit an outdoor location and fill out a chart describing the ecosystem location, telling why it’s an ecosystem, and listing other relevant information about it. Students are also asked to match terms with their definitions on their own, demonstrating their understanding of the lesson vocabulary.

The students will be able to define biome and ecosystem, identify their differences, and list characteristics and types of each.

    Great start to helping me build my Biomes Unit

    A great resource easy to access. However not all links are active any longer. It's provided me with many ideas and good learning for my own review of biomes and ecosystems. Thanks!

    Biomes and Ecosystem

    The lesson plan worked well with my teaching style and the students were engaged and challenged as expected. I will continue to use Clarendon with my students. 7th grade science teacher, Mrs. Pickett

    Wonderful Content

    The reason I keep returning to Clarendon is the worksheets are well done and the Resource page they always include with link to help with repetition, YouTube videos and additional activities or even games. So often just a lesson is given and we have to move on, but students (particularly my own) really need those other opportunities for different delivery methods to feel confident. I can't thank you enough!
