Desert Life Today

Our essential question for our study or deserts is How do organisms adapt to living in deserts? In Science class they have studied how plants and animals have adapted to life in the deserts. In class we have talked about the different types of deserts. On Friday, the kids watched videos of people living in different types of deserts in different parts of the world to see how humans have adapted to living in deserts. They then created mock interviews based on what they learned. To see the videos click on the links below.
