Group Biome Research Project


Each group of 4-5 students researches one of the following biomes:

  • Tropical Rain Forest
  • Savanna (Tropical Grassland)
  • Desert
  • Temperate Grassland
  • Temperate Deciduous Forest
  • Coniferous Forest (Taiga)
  • Tundra

Each group produces:

1. Written report

2. Power point presentation

3. Oral report

Each Student is responsible for:

  • Researching and writing about 1 animal in the biome
  • Researching and writing about an assigned 2nd topic (climate, location, plants, culture or current issue)
  • Creating power point slides for their animal and 2nd topic
  • Giving an oral presentation of what they learned to the class
  • Helping and supporting their group members throughout the project

Student grades are a mix of their individual effort and the group’s overall report. Each student is graded on:

  • The notes they turn in for their animal and 2nd topic
  • The portion of the report they were responsible for writing
  • The quality of their writing
  • The overall grade the group receives on the written report
  • The overall grade the group receives on the power point
  • Their oral presentation to the class
