                Biome Research Notes:
   4. Draw or describe some physical features in this biome, such as
      land formation, aquatic areas.




   5. Draw or describe some plants in this biome.

                Biome Research Notes:
   7. Choose one animal that has a habitat in this biome.

What physical (body adaptations) does it have that helps it survive in
this environment?




What are some behavioral (what animals do) characteristics that help
this animals survive in this environment?

   8. What are some plants that live in this biome?




   9. Pick one plant that lives in this biome, and describe any physical
      (how the plant is made) characteristics that help it survive?




Draw your biome. Include the land, water, some animals and plants.
