Below you will find a list of resources to help you and your partner complete the biome project; wikipedia.org is a very helpful source for finding the kingdom, phylum, class, order, family, genus, and species of the plants and animals within your biome. For example, if I am writing about the decidious forest biome, I may want to teach my classmates about the white tailed deer. Click the link below to see how valuable wikipedia can be:

White tailed deer

Notice how the kingdom, phylum, class, order, family, genus and species are all listed at the right hand side of the web page. Wikipedia does the same thing for plant species! This website, along with Google image is a great way to find pictures as well. Other helpful websites are listed below:
