Reflection: Checks for Understanding What is a Biome? - Section 4: Biome Gallery Walk


I noticed as we were discussing the ideas written about the biomes that some of the information was not totally correct.  For example, under "what is a biome?" many of them had written: forests, wetlands, and deserts.  We had talked about those being the three main biomes in Utah, but there are certainly many other biomes around the world.  It was a good check for understanding and I was able to readdress the misconceptions.
