Deserts

Having discussed North American deserts last week, this week we expanded our scope to deserts all across the world. We started with the biggest desert of all: Antarctica! We read a book, colored some Antarctic wildlife, and talked about cold deserts. We did a desert-themed word search with some good words (arid! burnoose! dromedary!). Next we drew desert landscapes (among other things) on sandpaper with crayon, and transferred them to tracing paper with a hair dryer before framing them in construction paper. We touched on the Sahara and quickly reviewed our two weeks of deserts. By the end I think we were all pretty thirsty!
