Adaptation Sorting Biome Activity

Since we're doing an Around the World curriculum for homeschool this year, I wanted to try to include some biome studies for science. However, I also want to make sure I hit the Next Generation Science Standards to keep my kiddo on track for if/when he goes to public school. Standard K-ESS3-1. asks students to  Use a model to represent the relationship between the needs of different plants and animals (including humans) and the places they live.

For each biome we will be reading about the animals that live there and their adaptations, but I made this activity to add a hands on component. I've included five different biomes with animals that live there and some of their adaptations. I opted to skip some of the biomes because the animals living there were likely to live in some of these also.

To make it a little more fun, I got out some of our Toobs and other animal figurines.
