      What are the 6 major biomes on Earth from the Poles to the Equator?
      What determines the animals that live in specific biomes?
      How are plants and animals adapted to live in specific biomes?
    • So…what is a Biome anyway?
      A Biome is a large area with particular plants, animals, weather and climate.
      These components are only found in that biome!
      LET’S THINK…..
      Would we ever see a polar bear walking around in our backyard?? Why or Why Not?
      We would NOT see this because a polar bear is not adapted for the biome we live in!!
    • What animals do we see in our backyard?
    • Why do you think these animalscan live in our biome?
      The weather and climate is perfect for them
      Able to find food
      Able to find shelter
      THIS MEANS THESE ANIMALS HAVE ADAPTED TO LIVE IN OUR BIOME!!
    • So, let’s back up—What are the 6 biomes?

      Desert
      Tundra
