Amazing Biome Projects
You Can Build Yourself

Amazing Biome Projects You Can Build Yourself  takes kids ages 9 and up on a circumnavigation of the globe to learn about Earth's terrestrial and aquatic biomes. They'll wander through forests, sizzle in deserts, shiver in the tundra, plunge beneath the seas to explore coral reefs, and slog through marshy waters. Along the way, kids will encounter flora and fauna adapted for survival in each unique climate zone. They'll learn about gnarly krumholz trees, bioluminescent sea creatures, camouflage, carnivorous plants, and blubbery marine critters. In each biome, people who use science in their jobs are highlighted, whether at the site of a disastrous oil spill or an oh-so-cool mastodon dig.

School Library Journal—“Although the text addresses young ‘eco explorers’ directly, this book will likely be used as much by teachers, parents, and organization leaders in planning group activities. Offering an overview of eight terrestrial biomes as well as the ocean, Latham crams a lot of information about climate, plants, animals, soil, and other characteristics onto every page. Vocabulary, jokes, and short questions and answers are tucked into various layouts along with small drawings in shades of gray. Instructions for hands-on activities related to different biomes include craft projects such as pictographs and a cornhusk doll. Students can learn how to make a glacier, an erupting volcano, and a tornado in a bottle. They can bake honey wheat bread or concoct rainforest ‘crunch and munch.’ They can create a pinecone bird feeder, conduct experiments related to acid rain, and assemble a desertarium. Latham also lists ways to help the environment in everyday life . . . Designed for hands-on learners, with adult advice and guidance as needed.”

 

Greg DeFrancis, Director of Education, Montshire Museum—“This high-powered tour of ecological principles is chocked full of information, activities, and science vocabulary. Science educators and parents will be thrilled with the amount of information the author has packed into Biomes.”

Have you ever planted a terrarium, or a miniature garden, in a jar? Now, give your green thumb some exercise by building a desertarium, or a miniature desert!
