The Taiga Biome, is the largest terrestrial biome, and covers approximately a third of the earth. 25 Beautiful, high resolution images capture the Taiga Biome environment in Folder. This is classified as a subarctic region.
This environment sits just below the Tundra biome, and extends across Europe, Asia and North America. Interestingly, the word ‘taiga’, is a Russian word that translates to ‘land of the little sticks’.
This product; one of 10 different biomes; will introduce the Child to a variety of images, and facts about humans, flora, and fauna and landscapes that call this cold, windy and frozen environment, their home. This material is not an exhaustive supply of images and information for the taiga. We suggest that the teacher expands on this information, as projects for the children to work upon. Use the boundary information as a guide, rather than a fact, because independent sources differ about the current information, of biome placements.
