Our sixth grade social studies text covers biomes. The continent of North America alone contains many biomes. Students will identify and discuss various biomes. Writing has become a focus at our school because the student's are receiving low scores on their writing portion of the ISTEP tests. This assignment will address two essential needs; one in writing and one in social studies. Biomes include forests, grasslands and oceans.

The "starter" from Dr. Lamb's examples initiated my project pages. I looked in D.K. Clip Art for pictures, but eventually used 42eXplore pictures from a biomes project (from the "Desert Biome" homepage)

Indiana Frogs is the second attempt. Again, I used a starter for the PowerPoint pages. The information the students are to obtain is found in the following website frogwatch
