These 1st/2nd grade desert commons lessons detail how students can take care of the desert from afar. Students will complete a desert tour and complete fact sheets for assessment. Assessment ideas and standards are listed. One rubric is free on TpT. Commons is any place that everyone must care for (biomes, oceans, air, and locally: classroom materials, playground). Students will learn what they can do to care for biomes that are a part of our world but not near us. These are a part of an entire unit on the desert biome and keeping the biome healthy.
This is the animal fact sheet for lessons 8 & 9.
