Podcasts are up!

As we finish our reports on biomes, students have been working to post their research in the form of a podcast. Podcasting is a way to share multimedia resources through the internet. They usually get posted as either an audio or video recording. I have a link posted (under "links") for the podcast page, which is run by ""


Find the link to the podcasts on this page.

Listen to two of your classmate's podcasts.

Write a paragraph describing what you learned from the podcast.

There are less particles in the air to get the sun to heat them which is why the higher you are the colder it gets. The snow on the top doesn't melt but it freezes and once it gets low enough it melts.
They get 750 to 1500 mm. or rain in warm seasons. The trees go dormant to survive and animals hibernate.

The weather in the mountains varies depending on the altitude.The higher you go, the colder the air is. This is because there are fewer air particles to hold heat. Mountain gorillas and mountain goats live there. Savannas are open plains of grass with occasional trees. 2/3 of the organic material is underground.

from nick's podcast, i learned that the deciduous forest is a very active biome. it gets a lot of water, has a lot of biodiversity, and the trees and animals hibernate.

I listned to jory's podcast and what i learned about the tundra is that is the worlds youngest biome. It's average tempature is -70 degrees farengheit. Average wind speeds are about 30 mph. Because of the sun being up all day and all night it got the name tundra the land of the mid night sun.
Some dangers of the tundra is that there are pipes under it so it causes globel warming, the pipes are used to transfer oil.

I listened to Mike's Wetlands blurbs. Wetlands are mostly non-coastal, but when they are coastal, they usually prevent our coastal communities from getting flooded and disappearing from the map.

I listen to Gabe and Laura's podcasts.

I learned that estuaries have mangrow forests in them. Also, estuaries have a wide variety of birds, fish, and some aquatic organisms. The main way estuaries are affected by humans is recreational activities. Also, the most known Chaparral is located in Hollywood, CA which can reach up to 300 feet high. Although, it chaparrals are very hot and get very little precipitation, causing droughts.
