Learning the Six Land Biomes

My 7th grade inclusion science class is studying the six land biomes. As they read with small groups, they completed an outline the teacher had made for them. I used that information to create some review sheets for the quiz this Friday. The notes have simplified wording, diagrams, and photographs.

I was able to quickly make these handouts on my iPad with an app called iDraw. It is $8.99 and worth every penny. You can easily pull in photos from the internet and position them wherever you want (much faster than using Word).

You can save the files as PDFs or images and straight to Dropbox or your photos. This is how I’ve been designing all of my handouts lately and each time I use it I get a little quicker with it. (Actually, Tweedle Dee plays with it from time to time and she has taught me some tricks.) I posted the PDF versions below if you would like to use them.

  1. My sophomore biology class is doing biome projects now, too! You’ve got some great handouts.

    1. Have you seen this video? http://youtu.be/0A5eeE93uEA My room is across the hall from science and I have listened to it way too much the last two weeks. 🙂 My daughter is in 7th grade too so she is singing it constantly when we get home.
