Biomes of Arizona Big Book

Lesson Plan Content
Arizona is a land of diverse landscapes. While some students may experience travel throughout the state, not all students may be experiencing this advantage. Therefore, by researching biomes, students will know about the state in which they reside. Hopefully, this will inspire them to travel and learn even more. In this lesson, students will learn about the biomes of Arizona and practice map reading skills.
