A TEMPERATE FOREST BIOME
Assignment 2: LASA 1: Organisms in Your Biome: A TEMPERATE FOREST BIOME
Assignment 2: LASA 1: Organisms in Your Biome (DO THIS ON A TEMPERATE FOREST BIOME)
In this assignment, you will create a Microsoft PowerPoint presentation that exhibits the different organisms in your current biome.
Identify Ten Organisms
Make a list identifying at least ten organisms—at least five plants and five animals—that live in your biome, and describe how these organisms interact with one another. For example, is the relationship competitive or symbiotic?
- Describe Each Organism and its Environmental NeedsIn the speaker notes section in your presentation, briefly describe these ten organisms and the type of conditions—that is, moisture, warm temperatures, or a type of plant—they need in order to survive. Be sure to include the interactions between these organisms and the resources they need to survive. You may wish to use various tools available in Microsoft PowerPoint to visually depict these relationships.
- Develop a 10–15-slide presentation in Microsoft PowerPoint format. Apply APA standards to citation of sources. Use the following file naming convention: LastnameFirstInitial_M3_A2.ppt.
By Wednesday, September 16, 2015, deliver your assignment to the M3: Assignment 2 Dropbox.
