PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This resource provides many mix and match options for learning about desert biomes and the adaptations of plants and animals for living in the desert, along with a mapping activity, questions for the different reading passages, and a fun color-by-number answer sheet your students will love! This resource is provided in two versions: one with US spelling and one with UK spelling. You choose to print the version you'd like. They're both in the same pdf file.

You’ll receive:

• A two-page reading passage about the characteristics of the world’s desert biomes
• A one page reading passage about plant and animal adaptations for living in the desert
• A map for students to use with an atlas (not included) to find and color eight of the world’s major deserts.
• A set of questions to go with the combined world deserts and desert adaptations reading passages
• A two page reading passage about camels – the iconic animal of the desert
• A set of questions to go with the reading passage on camels

AND

A fun color-by-number Camel At The Oasis picture color-coded to work with EITHER the world deserts/adaptations questions OR the camel reading passage questions.

You can mix and match the reading passages, maps, questions, and color-by-number activities to best match the needs of your class and your students! Please take a minute to look at the preview, where you will see every page of this resource. It will give you a chance to make an informed decision about the suitability of this resource for your students.
