Around the World in 8 Biomes!

Biome travel lesson

Discover America first-hand with our tours by exploring the world's Biomes.

Congratulations, you have just received a job as an advertising agent with an out-of-this-world Smithsonian Student Travel Company! It is your first day and your boss has already presented you with a world-class assignment: to advertise a new and exciting biome to visit, which meets the Smithsonian Institution’s high standards of excellence in education and quality. Good luck on your first sales pitch!

Use Your iPad To Sell Your Tour

You and your partner will study one of the eight biomes we have discussed in class. Using information that you find on the internet, you will create a flyer using Smore and a Haiku Deck presentation to advertise your biome to customers. Show your boss that your biome will be the number one selling tour that you get to lead!

Time Your Tour...what is the best and worst time to travel to your biome and why?

“Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Remember to highlight the educational values that define your biome.

In ecology, a biome is a major regional group of distinctive plant and animal communities best adapted to the region's physical natural environment, latitude, altitude and terrain.
