This lesson introduces the learners to the human and physical characteristics of desert regions around the world, including vegetation and animals that inhabit those deserts.
The purpose of this lesson is to acquaint the students with the four different types of deserts regions and their characteristics.
The purpose of this lesson is to explore the concept of human environmental interaction and stewardship of water resources. Learners will develop a deeper understanding of water conservation by looking at the city of Phoenix, Arizona located partly in the Sonoran Desert in the south western United States.
Note: Activities in this lesson may be applied to almost any of the deserts regions around the world that are impacted by a city or humanly inhabited area.
The purpose of this lesson is to demonstrate to the learners that everyone has a responsibility to be good stewards of the land. They will gain a deeper understanding of volunteering and the opportunity cost involved.
