Teachers Info
Learners:
First graders who are in need
of individualized practice in
classifying animals

Next

Teachers Info
Environment:
-quiet time, either in the
classroom or at home, on the
computer
-this is an individualized
activity
Next

Teachers Info
Objectives:
-Given the 5 biomes, students will
be able to effectively match an animal
to its appropriate biome without error.
-Without reference or assistance,
students will be able to identify what
characteristics allow certain animals to
live in their respective biomes.
Next

Teachers Info
Standards:
-1.3.1 Classify living organisms according to
variations in specific physical features (e.g., body
coverings, appendages) and describe how those
features may provide an advantage for survival
in different environments.
-1.3.4 Describe how animals habitats,
including plants, meet their needs for food,
water, shelter and an environment in which they
can live.

Hi! Im Sally the
Scientist!
I will guide you around
the world to learn about
animals in different
habitats, or biomes.

Marine Biome
A marine biome is
any environment
made of water. All of
the oceans, rivers,
and lakes are some
examples of marine
biomes.

There are a few


mammals who live
in the water, such as
dolphins and
whales. Animals like
these have to come
to the surface to
breath and do notNext
have gills.

Desert Biome
The Desert is a
very hot and dry
place to live. There
are deserts in
North, South, and
Central America,
Africa, Asia, and
Australia.

Next

Who lives in the desert?

Next

What do they have in


common?
Desert animals
have learned
to live in hot
temperatures
with little
water.

Most sleep during


the day and are
active at night.
These animals are
called nocturnal.
Next

Desert animals with fur have thick hair to


protect them from the sun.

What do they have in


common?
Many desert
animals are
light in color so
that they blend
in with their
habitat.

Reptiles
are cold
blooded.

Forest Biome
There are a few types of
forests in the world. They
include rain forests,
temperate forests, and
boreal forest. Forests
have many kinds of
plants and trees. They
support many kinds of
animals too!

Next

Who lives in the Forest?

Next

What do they have in


common?
Forest animals
have fur to keep
warm in the
winter and
protect them
from the sun all
year.

Most use trees for


shelter or shade.

Next

Many forest animals store extra fat before


the winter so that they can hibernate or
migrate.

What do rainforest animals have in


common?
They are
brightly
colored.

They live in hot


and wet habitats.

Many of them also use trees


and plants for shelter.

Grasslands Biome
Grasslands are rich
in plants, such as
tall grass, but lack
shelter for the
animals who live
there. They have
hot summers and
cold winters.

Next

Who lives in the


Grasslands?

Next

What do they have in


common?

Most are grazing animals.


They live
through
both hot
summers
and cold
winters.

Fewer animals are


predators and eat
those who graze.

Many are fast runners to catch


prey or run from predators.

Next

Next

Assessment question

Are animals in the Grasslands fast runners?


Yes, they need to run fast to escape predators,
as there are few places for shelter.

No, there is no need for them to move fast.

Arctic Biome
The Arctic Biome is
very cold! In the
summer the Arctic gets
24 hours of sun and
only gets to be 35 to
55 degrees on the
hottest days.

Next

Who lives in the Arctic

Next

What do they have in


common?
It is very cold in the
Arctic, so they all
have fur coats or
layers of fat to keep
them warm.

They also store


extra fat for energy.

Next

Most of them are white


or mostly white to blend
in with the snow and
ice.

If they arent white,


they are brown and live
near the forest in the
Arctic.
