Studying past biomes can bring history to life.
For example, my daughter did a biome report about the Great Lakes region of
New York. She studied the past population of Native Americans, especially the
The Iroquois were very organized politically
and had something similar to our United Nations with other Native American tribes. We visited some
areas where they may have held great gatherings or “UN council meetings”. Also,
she studied the habitats, animals, plants, housing and clothing that were part
of their biome. She found plants and animals that were well adapted to this ecosystem and a part of the
economic system of the Iroquois. She compared and contrasted some of the information of their past biome to our modern biome.
Religion biome research can be very interesting
as well. Different weather, animals, plants and raw materials can
make the you understand religious events within their era.
