This is a PowerPoint presentation I put together for the desert biome. It includes examples of both the species diversity for flora and fauna.
Students will get a good idea of where deserts occur around the world and why. My background is in geology and I've done a lot of field trips to the deserts of California. As a result, there are numerous pictures of the geological topography such as inselbergs, dunes and alluvial fans. I've found that students appreciate seeing this since most have driven through the desert at one time or another.
This presentation was written for AP Environmental Science students in mind. It would also be a great presentation for biology students.
This presentation would go well with the biome mapping lab I have posted on teacherspayteachers.com.
Have fun with this presentation! Happy presenting and let me know how it goes!
