This lesson did a good job of helping students actually build the biome. I like the idea of not only having students reserch different aspects that make up a biome (plants, animals) but also to build the relationships. This takes the lesson one step further and to a higher level thinking process.

I think the basic premise of this lesson is sound. Learning about the balance of the world’s ecosystems is wonderful. However, I do feel like the technology element of this lesson needs some work. After review, it appears that the only use of technology is the Internet search engine. I would like to see some other technology integrated in with this lesson. Perhaps a collaborative Wiki or Google to share their findings. It might be fun to have students collect their information and create a Glog. I think it is a great intro lesson that would be enhanced with greater technology.
