Biomes...

Had a science meet up today and did our biomes. We started with a discussion on what biomes are and then made our own. First we started with our vocabulary list..

Then started our talk and the fun stuff...
we started by lining the tank and containers with a small layer of rock, then added in plants and dirt..
once those were in we watered the plants, cut the screens to fit each container and added crickets, food and water...
we filled out our day 1 of our experiment book and the kids had fun watching the crickets..
Then we discussed the different biomes and habitats, defined them, and then selected some animals for each one. As we go thru our science book, we will fill in each square with different animals we learn about from each...

Had lots of fun, and the girls are excited for the next meet up!
