|Title ||The Traveling Biome|
|Audience ||Any Biology or Life Science class|
|Abstract ||The Traveling Biome is an activity in which teachers and their students engage in a "biome exchange" with teachers and students throughout the nation. In the exchange, students construct biome boxes which accurately represent their local area. Boxes are then exchanged with a distant class.
This activity is a model that can be adapted to your area. It is designed to be used by a cooperative group as a culminating activity after studying biomes in an environmental science class. However, you may find it more convenient or easier to approach it in your own way and use it in any life science or biology class.
