Our Deserts lesson plan introduces students to deserts and their characteristics. During this lesson, students are asked to color in desert images, as well as shading in different deserts in different colors on a world map and answering questions about them based on the lesson material. Students are also asked to identify desert plants and match terms to their definitions, demonstrating their understanding of the lesson vocabulary.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define desert, identify characteristics of a desert, and list living things in a desert.
