Biome Project Ideas for Middle School

Instructor: Grace Pisano

Grace has taught high school history in several states with a master's degree in teaching.

One major topic in middle school science classrooms is the study of biomes, which are the different types of vegetation and animals that live in an area. The study of biomes lends itself to a plethora of projects for middle school students.

World Biomes

There are few things as broadly interesting as the study of different animals. Thankfully, this is a major part of learning about biomes! In the projects below, middle school students will have the opportunity to pick a biome or set of biomes and complete research on the topic. Students will do in-depth research on what makes the biome unique and what life looks like within that biome. The first project is meant to be a group effort and the last two projects will be completed individually.

A note about biomes: there are different approaches regarding the number of biomes in the world. If your curriculum does not include one of the biomes listed in the notes below, feel free to exclude this from student choices.
