Biomes

Scientists have developed the term Biome to describe areas on the earth with similar climate, plants, and animals.

These webpages were developed by approximately seventy 9th grade students at Thurston High School in Springfield, Oregon in 1997. This was an integrated Science, Literature, and Health project in periods 3, 4, and 5 (see links below). Information has been collected on the following biomes:


Marine 3, 4, 5

Tundra 3, 4, 5

Desert 3, 4, 5

Grassland 3, 4, 5
