Get your child thinking about biomes by playing the Biome Boxes game with toy animal figures.
You can get your child thinking about biomes by playing this game with your toy animal figures. Use your child's existing collection of small plastic animals or purchase new animals for the game. You will need animals belonging to several different biomes (habitats), which might include grasslands, rainforest, marsh, arctic, deciduous forest, desert, ocean and so forth. You will need to have an equal number of animal figures for each selected biome.
Here are a few biome sets to get you started:
If you are unsure of the biome of any of the animals in your child's collection, looking up the information together before the game provides a valuable learning opportunity. Talk with your child about the biomes to which all of the animal figures belong. If necessary, write them down to use as a reference during the game.
