This week, Izzie has been learning about the different biomes around the world. To introduce the vocabulary, I printed off pictures for each biome and laminated each onto construction paper. I added a color coordinated biome name. She enjoyed matching the name tag with the correct biome picture. We talked about the different features of each biome and she really liked telling everyone that we live in the Deciduous Forest biome with all the pretty leaves!
I found these two packs of flashcards at Target in the $1 section. They're really nice and heavy flashcards with a lot of information about each animal on the back.
I found five animals that live in the Tropical Rain Forest and five that live in the Savannah. Izzie was able to quickly determine which animals lived in which habitat.
We discussed why each animal lived in that particular habitat....introduced the term, adaptations.
