FREE Habitat Adventure Science Game – Exploring Biomes and Taxonomy

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!

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.
