OverviewThis program introduces students to the concept of life zones within the Sierra Nevada by taking students on a virtual trip up into the mountains. Students explore how climate (temp-erature and precipitation) shapes a landscape and discover how plants and animals adapt to survive in each life zone. This lesson culminates in a hands-on group game.
