Biomes Pin Map

Today we started our big unit on biomes (deserts, forests, tundra,
etc.) and animal habitats. I’m so excited about the pin map I made!

I bought the picture cards set of biomes from
http://teacherdesk.info/ (for $2.00 US). I printed them out
along with some of the smaller photos.  (See the photo below this
post.)

I printed out the world biome map and the key from
http://www.science-house.org/workshops/buncombe/Mazzei/index.html

Then I combined the key with photos from the picture
pack to make a pin map. I’ll post another picture below
so you get a better idea of what I mean.

  1. Someone asked me a couple more questions about how I made the pin parts. Here's what I told her:The long pins were just straight pins I had in my sewing stuff. They are just over an inch and a half long. I'm sure I got them at a sewing store at some point.I placed the biome key word (like desert or tundra) next to a picture of it and laminated them together. Once they were laminated, I cut them out leaving extra plastic around the edges.I stuck the pin through, up through the back, then down through the bottom and covered the pin on both sides with clear packing tape. This makes it nearly impossible for my little one to pull out the pin.
