Deserts of the World
We will begin by looking at where the deserts of the world are found. We will investigate the desert climate and make our own desert biome.
Today we will investigate desert plant life and conduct an experiment to see how a cactus stores water.
We will find out about different species of animals found in the desert. We will investigate the food chain they live within, and their adaptations.
Today we will look at how people live and survive in the desert. We will make our own outdoor ovens (if it’s sunny) and look at how to make a shelter for protection from hot days and cold nights.
We will be imagining we have been stranded on a desert island and making survival plans. Then we will write a message in a bottle about what life is like on our desert island.
