In fourth grade we briefly study landforms in both science and social studies. We also learn about ecosystems on our overnight camping trip, so I like to complete a biome project with my kiddos. I blogged briefly about this project before, you can read about it here. I like to use this series to teach my kiddos how to research. They are full of fun facts about different parts of the biome, like the plants, animals, landforms, climate etc. The other thing that I love is that it is written for 8-10 year olds, so even my lower level kids can read these books without a problem.
If you are interested in doing a Biome Research Project with your kiddos you can download the plan sheet that I use with my kiddos for free here.
What are your favorite science mentor texts to share with your kiddos?
