Welcome to the desert! These animal diet activities are based on "Cactus Hotel" by Brenda Z. Guiberson. This is one of my favorite books.
This beautiful book shows the life cycle of a saguaro cactus. The cactus becomes a home to many creatures over its two hundred year life.

*A two page story sequencing cut and paste activity

These activities correlate well with Virginia SOL 3.6 b-c & 3.5 a-c.
