This is part of a series of free enrichment activities with an ecological theme. This fun sheet combines a coloring activity with a word puzzle, and it's all about desert ecosystems in North America! Students alphabetize the names of desert plants and animals to learn which desert is the driest. Perfect for using during units on ecosystems or biomes, the Southwest, coyotes, roadrunners, and snakes.
Use as a morning warm-up or for early finishers.
