Great summaries of 7 terrestrial Biomes with a matching 'game' set for beginners and more advanced users.  I might try this with 10th grade honors students to see if they 'get' the climatographs and remember how to apply what we have been learning about temperatures and precipitation in the different ecosystems.

This website engages students in their learning about Biomes. The interactive games are a great to reinforce the students learning and helpful for ELL students.

I've used this one before. I think I may have this posted among my MA resources for NASA RESOURCE DRIVEN INSTRUCTION. I love the vocab content. It works great with my EL students.
