As part of their topic on Evolution Biology, Year 5 have been studying biomes. What is a biome?
“Biomes are very large ecological areas on the earth’s surface, with fauna and flora (animals and plants) adapting to their environment. A biome is NOT an ecosystem, although in a way it can look like a massive ecosystem. If you take a closer look, you will notice that plants or animals in any of the biomes have special adaptations that make it possible for them to exist in that area. You may find many units of ecosystems within one biome.”
There are five major biomes – desert, tundra, aquatic, forest, and grassland. Year 5 students chose one of these major biomes, and made posters explaining the biome of their choice. And here are some of them:
Well done Year 5!
