This interactive classroom activity facilitates student learning about biodiversity through an investigation of biomes (what they are, how they're defined, their global distribution) using a free app called BiomeViewer developed by HHMI...
PowerPoint slides (designed for a large lecture-style course) walk students through how to use the app, and present a series of poll questions that can be used to solicit student ideas, and keep track of engagement and participation. Information about step by step implementation can be found as text in the presenter notes for each slide. The teaching notes document provides an overview of implementation strategy, learning goals, and possible ways to adapt this case study for different settings.
