This is an easy exercise to identify the different biomes. The only thing you have to do is drag the answer and locate it on the picture.

Some days ago we classified landscapes into three types: NATURAL, TRANSFORMED and ORDERED. We learned their definitions, characteristics and we are now able to identify them.

Here you have an exercise where you have to identify pictures of landscapes with their names.

And another one where you have to match the TYPES OF LANDSCAPES to THEIR DEFINITIONS / EXPLANATION .

All the previous activities are excellent practise for the exam you have soon.
