The temperate deciduous forest is a biome that is continuously changing. Distinguished by four distinct seasons, each year the forests get between 75cm (30″) to 100cm (40″) rain, year round. 25 Beautiful, high resolution images capture the Temperate Forest Biome, and are stored in a folder. These biomes are found in the mid-latitude areas, falling between the polar, and tropical regions. Interestingly, the definition of deciduous is ‘falling off’, which is exactly what the leaves do during autumn.
This product; one of 10 different biomes; will introduce the Child to a variety of images, and facts about humans, flora, fauna, and landscapes that call this temperate environment their home. This material is not meant to be an exhaustive supply of images, and information for the deciduous biome. 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.
