In our homeschool science we’ve been learning about the Biosphere. To help my kids better understand the different Biomes, I created Habitat Adventure. This free printable Science game teaches kids about 8 Major Biomes of the World, 60+ animals, as well as Taxonomy.

Learning about Biomes in Homeschool Science

In our Homeschool Science this year we've been using Christian Kids Explore Biology. I love all the hands on science activities it proves as well as it’s ease of use. It is perfect to use together as a family by focusing on hands on activities with younger learners and adding in the worksheets and more advance projects for older kids.  

In Unit 1 of Christian Kids Explore Biology we were learning about Biomes and Taxonomy. That can be a hard concept for kids to grasp and commit to memory. So in my quest to provide a fun, learning environment for my kids I came up with a game that would help them!

FREE Printable Habitat Adventure Game

Habitat Adventure is a fun, easy to play, educational game for kids in Kindergarten – 6th Grade. In the game you will travel around the board helping put the animals back in their correct Biome (or habitat). While doing so your child will become familiar with 8 major Biomes of our World - Desert, Mountains, Grassland, Ocean, Arctic Tundra, Deciduous Forest, Coniferous Forest, and Tropical Rain Forest.

You will need to download the free game at the bottom of this post and print off the following on cardstock for durability:
  • 22” x 8” gameboard (that is 2 sheets of paper taped together)
  • Animal fact Cards (optional - you can print back on cards too)
  • Get a dice and game markers (I suggest small stamps with lids, pom poms, animals, etc.)

Animal Fact CardsFREE Animal Fact Cards

Each Animal Fact Card is filled with with information. So besides using with the Habitat Adventure Game, these cards are great to teach your kids about some amazing Animals from all over the world.  Each card includes the Biome the animal is native to, Taxonomy information, beautiful photograph, animal name, information about the animal, plus for those just studying North America, you can sort your cards by animals found in North America!

Taxonomy for Kids

Using the Animal Fact Cards from the FREE Printable Habitat Adventure Game, my kids started sorting animals by their taxonomy. We started with putting all the animals part of the Kingdom Animalia in a pile (Hint: that will be all of them). Next we sorted them by Phylum, Class, Order, and Family. It was a great hands on way for kids to understand Taxonomy.

    1. Oops, apparently I was mistaken. It showed a blank page, but it did download. I'm not too familiar with Google Drive yet. This looks great. I think we'll use it for science tomorrow. Thank you!
