Where are the Earth’s biomes?
In this lesson, we are going to be learning about where the Earth’s six major biomes are located and how their position on the Earth impacts their climates. We conclude by considering the huge variation that exists within continents. Don’t worry if you missed the first lesson of this as the first 5 minutes briefly recaps lesson1. Please watch the lesson, pausing when you are given questions and make a note of any answers in your book. Take a photo of your work and upload it to dojo for the Y6 team to see.
