Biomes of the World
A biome is a large area where specific plants and animals live. This reading and writing worksheet teaches students about 10 biomes of the world, from the cold tundra to the hot desert. First, students will study a world map with a legend of the biomes, then answer questions about the different regions. Being able to understand features of nonfiction texts, such as maps, is an important skill for fourth graders to master.
