Hi!
Thank you for purchasing my review of the biomes! I made these for my own classroom and use them
as a teaching and reviewing tool!
This is a quick assessment for use after teaching the biomes to your students. It is meant to only take 5
minutes; so only five biomes have been chosen for review.
This review encourages READING for UNDERSTANDING and PROBLEM SOLVING as well as CRITICAL
THINKING.
Two different review sheets are provided here: one with a word bank and one without. Decide which
best suits your students.
The whole thing should only take 5 minutes. Keep a timer running, play some music and make it fun!

Read the following passages to determine the location of the biome. Write the name of the biome in
the space below each description.
1.
“Here, there is a huge difference between the day and night temperatures even within a single day! It
can get very cold at night, even though it was warm during the day. The soil is sandy and there is a
interesting variety of plants, but they grow sparsely and compete for water. It seems hard to grow a
garden here, because of the lack of rain. There is less than 10 inches of rain per year! Most of the wild
animals are nocturnal, or stay in the shade during the day. You can find plenty of reptiles if you know
where to look!”

2.
“You can definitely feel all four seasons here. It is warm in the summer and cold in the winter. Trees may
lose all their leaves in the autumn and many birds migrate before the first cold of winter. In my back yard,
I can see squirrels, raccoons, opossums, and song birds.”

3.
“Around here, all you can see for miles is grassland. There are only a few types of trees and shrubs, but
they are small. There really isn’t a lot of plant diversity. There is a dry season, and last year there were
several grass fires. There are many unique animals here; zebras, elephants and also giraffe.”

4.
“Our home is close to the Equator. We get tons of rain here – last year we had over 177 inches of rain!
There is a huge variety of plant life here. Some tall trees are over 150 feet! We also have ferns and vines.
There are many animals. Some huge insects and many birds and reptiles.”

5.
“Most of the northern part of the earth is like here. They say almost 20% of the land on the Earth is like
this. There is a very short growing season. When I tried to dig a hole in the ground, I discovered that I
could only dig about an inch down, because the ground is frozen. The arctic hare and arctic fox live
here.”
