Grassland Diorama Project by jessly ortega

  1. 1. ****

This is video about Grassland ecosystem. In this video I learned that has a lot of svana anmls and tall grass, tall tress, and tornado .people hunt for anmls

  1. 2. This vido has buful grass and dry grass the whole land is green theres water it has a beautiful song

this video is about cubs and what they do they play fight they walk with there moms they. they runaround they like to clean

How to Make a Grassland Biome in a Box or Bottle

North Dakota is home to prairie grasslands.

Grassland biomes are characterized by grasses as the dominant vegetation and by relatively dry climates. As transitional biomes, grasslands are often found between deserts and forests. These areas include the central plains of the United States and Canada, the steppes of Russia, areas in the Middle East extending from Turkey to India, and African tropical grasslands, called savannas. After a bit of research, you can build a biome in a box or bottle that represents this distinct ecosystem.

Make a list of organisms native to a particular grassland ecosystem, such as a Midwestern tallgrass prairie or western shortgrass prairie. Grasslands typically have very few trees, although many species of flowers grow in addition to grass. Various species of grasses might include big bluestem, needlegrass, buffalo grass or galleta. Animal species might include birds and insects necessary for spreading plant pollen, large mammals, such as bison or wild horses, and small mammals and reptiles.
Narrow your list of possible plant and animal species to those you wish to represent in your box or bottle biome.
Create a list of items you need to create your biome. Consider abiotic and biotic factors. For example, you will need soil, which is an abiotic factor of a grassland biome. Grassland soil tends to vary among their different types -- temperate grasslands typically have dark and fertile soil, while some prairies have soil comprised of gravel or sand. Choose the soil closest to the grassland you want to represent in your biome. You will also need grass and any other plant life you wish to represent. Also consider art supplies or figurines to create representations of animals.
Select a shoebox, clear box or glass or plastic bottle to hold your biome. A shoebox is ideal for a traditional diorama, while a clear box with a lid with holes in the top will allow you to have a “living” biome with animals such as worms or butterflies. Bottles set upright will allow for tall grass to grow out of the spout, or you can cut a plastic bottle in half lengthwise and set it on its side for a bowl-like biome. You can choose to make a base for the plastic bottle on its side, but the weight of the soil will likely keep it from falling over.
Build your biome from the ground up. Start by adding soil to your box or bottle. If you choose to make a living biome, add animals such as worms that would typically be found in the soil. Next, add your grass. You can choose to grow your own grass from seed or place grass you found at a nursery in the soil. Remember water as an abiotic factor of the ecosystem; your grass will need some water to grow, but grasslands in general receive low to moderate amounts of precipitation. Plant ironweed, thistle or other native flowering plants from your list.
Use pictures or create models of animal species you want in your biome. You can use construction paper, clay dough or plastic figurines for these animals. If you choose to make a living biome, consider something small like a butterfly or beetle, and make sure your box allows air for the animal to breathe. If you have living creatures in your biome, also consider the things those animals need to survive, such as a water supply and food.

Items you will need

  • Box or bottle
  • Soil
  • Grass
  • Art supplies

This is my project that I wanted to do and I am done with it.

Rossenys Diaz grassland ecosystem project


This is the project I will be working on the grassland ecosystem.This model is a cake demonstrating the healthy grassland and the damage grassland.I will not baking a cake.The materials I will be using is, I will be using clay, plastic animals from the store, Oreo cookies to make the dirt, some flowers and a small box.This is how I will complete my project.

A normal grassland should look like this.It is very important to keep grassland clean. It is very important to keep it clean because it gives us oxygen.


Grassland should never look like this.Fire causes damage to the grassland, animals and earth. Fire sometimes are created by the heat of the weather, this is the worst it can happen.
Fire can create smoke that pollute our air.

Grassland facts:Rossenys Diaz
1.Grassland are so dry because they have no rain,snow,or sleet.
2.There is so much sun in grassland.
3.In the savannas there is sometimes rain.
4.Grassland can go by many names.
5.In south America they're called pampas.

From the books : Grasslands & Savannas, Grassland food chains, Baby animals in Grassland habitats & Grassland: DISCOVER EARTH'S ECOSYSTEMS.

Vocabulary in Grasslands/Savanna book:
biome: a large natural area with a distinctive climate,geology, and
set of water resources. A biome's plant and animals are adapted
for life here.

climate: average weather patterns in an area over many years.

geology: the rocks, minerals, and physical structure of an area.

biodiversity: the range of living things in an ecosystem.

adapt: changes of a plant or animal makes to survive new or
different conditions.

ecosystem:a community of a living and nonliving things and their
environment. Living things are plants, animals, and insects.
Nonliving things are soil, rocks, and water.

environment: everything in nature, living and nonliving.

The rest will be shown post-by-post. We'll be doing Grassland food chains tomorrow for our post. By and [[#|Happy]]external image arrow-10x10.png Thursday!!!

OH!!! One more thing: I will give you a website each week that are found on YouTube. It's full of lots of videos on grasslands.
