What is a Biome?

The Earth has many different environments varying in temperature, moisture, light, and many other factors. Each of these habitats has distinct life forms living in it forming complex communities of interdependent organisms. A complex community of plants and animals in a region and a climate is called a biome.


Gifted students collaborated with MSA students to transform their hallway into a museum. The following biomes were researched and displays were created.


  • Desert
  • Tundra 
  • Chaparral
  • Temperate Forest
  • Boreal Forest
  • Grassland 
  • Tropical Rain Forest
  • Freshwater Marsh 
  • Marine (ocean or sea)
