Biomes

During this presentation, students will observe animals up close as they investigate the different adaptations of animals from different biomes. They will even be able to touch some of the animals!

Biomes are the world's communities, classified according to the predominant vegetation and characterized by adaptations of organisms to that particular environment.


Tundra is a Lapp word meaning "rolling, treeless plain" and is characterized by extreme cold, a permafrost layer and a short growing season. Students will learn how animals like these grizzly bears are adapted for such harsh conditions.

 


Deserts are very dry, usually very hot and sunny. Creatures like this western diamondback rattlesnake possess special adaptations for these extreme
conditions. Students will learn what to look for when matching an animal to its biome.

 


Grasslands are dangerous places to be low on the food chain! Learn why these Pronghorn Antelope travel in herds and how they avoid becoming dinner for a wolf.

 


Aquatic biomes, whether saltwater or fresh, demand special adaptations of their inhabitants. These dolphins are perfectly suited to their underwater world.

 


Forests can be classified as Taiga, Temperate, or tropical rain forest. Learn the differences between these forests, and why this black ratsnake's white
chin helps him hide in the temperate forest.
