This series is designed to provide students with a good overall understanding of the various geological and atmospheric processes that have shaped our planet from its formation to the present day. I have used these materials as an elective class for the past few years but they have also been used by several science teachers as a basic introduction to Earth science.
Unit 10 covers the following areas:
1 - The formation of deserts and their landscapes
2 - The animals and plants which survive in desert environments
3 - Human uses of deserts
4 - Great deserts of the world
Other units in this series are also available. Please download the preview sheet for more details.
