Got Biome?

Planet Earth – what an interesting and fascinating world. 

So, we live on the third rock from the Sun.  But how much do you know about the planet’s five major biomes: aquatic, deserts, forests, grasslands and tundra?

World Bird Sanctuary offers a Resource Nest Box called “Where We Live”.  This is an educational resource box loaded with books, DVD’s, videos, activities, games and more.  For a nominal fee of $25.00 you can rent this box for a two-week period through our Education Department.

This box contains a wealth of information and tools and hours of entertainment including twenty-two books on topics such as: arctic and desert wildlife, the tundra, desert, woods, rainforest, oceans, wetlands, grasslands, prairies and more, a tree ring counting guide, a food chain game, five VHS videos about animals and prairies, the Planet Earth and Blue Planet boxed DVD set containing ten DVD’s, a puppet show with seven puppets and a script, and more.

Resource Nest Boxes are a great addition to classroom teaching, for home schoolers, students working on research papers, day cares, scout leaders, or for kids that just want to have fun and learn more about our great planet and the creatures that we share it with. 

Other available Resource Nest Box topics are: Protect Our Planet; Rocks Rock and Talon Tote.

To reserve one of our educational and environmentally friendly Resource Nest Boxes, please call the Education Department at 636-225-4390 extension 0.
