These 1st/2nd grade desert commons lessons detail how students can take care of the desert from afar. 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.
Assessment ideas and standards are listed. Please see the next lessons in this series on TpT. These 2 45minute lessons include an age appropriate culminating project to assess learning.
