Discovering Biomes (grades 6th-8th)
Discover the major biomes of the world and explore the animals that call it home. Students will understand what defines a biome, identify the differences between biomes, and compare and contrast the ways animals that live in each biome adapt to their surroundings. Spend time with our animal ambassadors to understand their unique attributes that allow them to survive in specific biomes.
