This week, I modified my biome sorting cards to a multiple choice smart board and powerpoint file. If your students need to be able to identify the basic characteristics of different biomes, this multiple choice set of characteristics will help your students review. Within the download, I have included three options for students to respond with their answers: using the multiple choice slides with Smart Response clickers, ABCD cards, or biome cards. The 6 biome categories in this set of questions include: tundra, taiga, temperate deciduous forest, grassland, desert, and tropical rainforest.
Understanding biomes is important knowledge for the NC 5th grade Science EOG. Here's a link to the released questions from NCDPI.Question 1 is related to biomes, "Why do large trees have a difficult time living in the tundra?" The Extend II sample questions are also good for helping students apply knowledge and review for the EOG.
