To culminate our desert unit, the students will complete desert projects.
All students will complete research and a visual aid on a desert plant--a cactus.
Primary students (grades 1-2) will choose to complete
1) a PowerPoint on a Desert Dweller OR
2) a Nature Scrapbook on a hot/cold desert
Intermediate students (grades 3-5) will choose to complete
1) a PowerPoint on a Desert Dweller and the Nature Scrapbook on a hot/cold desert OR
2) a Desert Game which includes a hot desert's animals, plants, climate, and food chain.
More information will be given to students in class. The description of each project is located on the Links tab. I hope to complete these projects over the next couple of weeks in class. However, some parts of the projects MAY need to be done at home. Students may certainly bring items from home for the Desert Game or even the Nature Scrapbook if needed.
*If you have shoe boxes that can be donated, please send them in. Primary students may create shoe box dioramas if time allows.
