Life in the Tundra
The information and activities in this resource book enhance children's knowledge and awareness of the components of tundra environments, including physical and biological characteristics. Students will discover where the tundras are located on our planet. They will find out what characteristics tundra environments have in common, what lives there, and how living things survive there. As they explore tundra organism adaptations, students will discover similarities and differences between living things in the tundra and those in other ecosystems. Engaging in activities that emphasize the ecology of plants and animals, food chains and food webs, and survival, students will begin to relate the structure of living things to their roles in the ecosystem. Four transparencies (print books) or PowerPoint slides (eBooks) are included to engage students in discussion and reinforce the concepts presented in the book.
