Can Biomes Change?  

Biomes are often defined by location, geographic landforms and water. Biomes usually have animals, plant life, and even particular life in the soil. Ecosystems are a part of a biome. What makes a biome unique is location, location, location.  One of the easiest biomes to study is the one you live in. You can adapt the lessons for preschool through college.

Studying landforms in preschool is the first step in studying biomes.

Make sandpaper land form cards for a more tactile experience. You can also make a sand globe to show the earth.

Use an old globe and fill in the land forms with glue, sprinkle with sand  to make a sand globe. Here is how to present the globe by Montessori Mum.

 For older children, you can learn about geology and geologic terms. This is a great free on line Dictionary of Geology.
