Summary of Key Learning Events and Instruction Title: Introduction to Biogeography and Biomes
Day 1
Time: 40-50 minutes
Objective: Introduction to Biogeography and Biomes
Anticipatory Set:
TTW: Last week we finished our diorama projects on ecosystems.
Now, we will be moving on to biomes to wrap up our ecology unit. As
a refresher, who can tell me what an ecosystem is? Yes, it is an
environment composed of abiotic and biotic components. Abiotic are
the nonliving things in an environment such as rocks and water, and
biotic are the living things such as the plant and animals. It is
important that we keep these things in mind as we continue on into
biomes. We learned that ecosystems are composed of what? They are
composed of numerous habitats. Biomes are made up of a bunch of
things. In this case, not just habitats. When we examine the major
biomes this week and next week, we will see that there are key factors
that make up a biome but a main factor are ecosystems. We did not
learn about them to leave them out of these lessons. Before we dive
into our lecture on the introduction to biomes, lets look at this video
on the major biomes of the world to prepare us.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hIy0ZlyPPDg
Body of Instruction: (Pass out Introduction to Biomes Worksheets -
Appendix B).
TTW: That video was full of beautiful imagery that has prepared us to
begin learning about the major biomes of the world. I have passed out
a worksheet in which you will complete as you follow along with the
lecture. Once we have finished the lectures slides for today, I will give
you one to two minutes to ask your fellow groups members to fill in
anything you have missed. You will turn your notes in so that I have
give you credit and ensure that you were following along and paying
attention during the presentation.
Present on slides 1- 13 from Biomes Presentation (Appendix A)
Biogeography
Continental Drift
Dispersal
Exotic Species
Invasive Species
Biomes + Map
Check for Understanding:
TTW: Who can tell me what biogeography is? Yes, it is the study of
where organisms live. Why do you think it is important for us to learn
what biogeography is to study biomes? By understanding
biogeography, we can understand ecosystem and ultimately biomes
roles in the lives of organisms. We now know that some species are
brought into a new environment. These are exotic species. Which are
different from invasive species, who tend to come into a new
environment and alter what is naturally there. The most common
examples are weeds taking over a lawn. And, how many major biomes
in the world are there? There are 6; rainforest, desert, deciduous forest,
grasslands, boreal forests (Taiga) and the tundra. They are located all
over the world.
Elaborate on the Content:
TTW: (Pass out biomes handout with map - Appendix C)
Now that we have had a lovely introduction to biomes, your task is to
read this biomes handout, write a 5 sentence summary and color in the
map. Read the directions carefully. It says to color each number that
correlates with a biome the same color. As in, all your taigas will be
one color and all your deserts will be the same color but different from
your taigas.
Assessment:
Completion notes accurately, coloring of biomes map and 5 sentence
summary.
Scaffolding and differentiation:
Teacher provides direct assistance to those in need of it. All
students are GATE and teacher asks as facilitator. Struggling
students are encouraged to work with partners and group
members. Groups are set up with one to two high performing
student, one to two average performing students and one to two
low performing students to provide additional help from peers.
Day 2 Teacher roams around classroom, stepping in where needed
and provided explicit instructions and check ins with students.

Title: Biome Think-Tac-Toe Project (Appendix E)


Time: 40-50 minutes
Anticipatory Set:
TTW: Now that we have successfully learned about the major biomes
in the world you will now show me that you understand them. For the
rest of the week, you we will take class time to work on you ecology
final project. I gave you a brief introduction to Biomes Think-Tac-Toe
(Appendix O) on Friday. Now, you will finalize your three projects,
plan out the material you will need and begin your research to
complete them. On Wednesday, you will submit rough drafts of your
projects. I will give them back with comments on Thursday and you
will submit your final projects at the end of class on Friday. Hang on
to your Biome Think-Tac-Toe because you will turn these in with your
projects. I will write your grade on them.
Body of Instruction:
TTW: Your task is to choose 3 activities from the Biome Think-Tac-
Toe worksheet. You can only complete activities in a horizontal,
diagonal or vertical line, just like when playing tic-tac-toe. You will
highlight or circle the activities that you choose to do. (Teacher will
then read through all 9 possible prompts and combinations for
project). Appendix O
Check for understanding:
TTW: Now that we have read through all prompts and possible
combinations, does anyone have any questions or concerns? (Teacher
will take and answer all of student questions and concerns).
Elaborate on Content:
TTW: I have passed back all assignments and notes that we have
completed on biomes, you are free to use those to help you complete
your projects. The chromebooks and I are also available as additional
resources.
Assessment:
Submission and accurate completion of 3 activities from Biome

Scaffolding and differentiation:
Teacher provides direct assistance to those in need of it. All
students are GATE and teacher asks as facilitator. Struggling
students are encouraged to work with partners and group
members. Groups are set up with one to two high performing
