Biomes Project:
● You will be working with a randomly assigned partner. This is so you can learn how to become an
effective communicator and collaborator.
● You will randomly pick a biome out of a box. No fair asking to exchange/trade/switch your biome.
● You will have only THREE class days (September 16, 18, and 19) to research for your project and ONE
day to prepare.
● Although you have a few class days to work on your project, I expect you and your partner to effectively
communicate with each other and work on your project outside of the classroom.
● You can present your project any of the following ways
○ Poster board Presentation OR PowerPoint Presentation
○ Diorama for assigned biome
● Projects are to be submitted by Tuesday, September 24th​ by the end of your class period.
● Presentations will take place on ​September 26th and 27th​. (Presenting on the 2nd day does not give
you extra time to work on your project).
