Read full description of the books What Is a Biome?:This is a great informational book that I would use for 3rd-5th graders. It does a Greg job introducing the different biomes and their characteristics to students. I could use this book to do an entire unto on biomes. First we could focus on what a biome is. Then we would look at each biome separately and compare and contrast one to another. How are they different, how are they alike. The student could do a venn diagram to compare and contrast one biome to another. What animals are found in each biome? What physical characteristics do those animals have that would allow them to live in that particular biome and survive.
