Teaching about deserts? Check out this site to learn where deserts are located, which animals and plants live in the desert, different types of deserts, and what a desert is really like. This site is also a web resource for the TeachersFirst interactive Biomes of the World Unit.

In the Classroom

During a unit on deserts, introduce this site on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Then have students explore this site independently or in small groups. Have cooperative learning groups create multimedia projects. Have students use a mapping tool such as Mapskip (reviewed here) to create a map of desert locations throughout the world (with audio stories and pictures included)!
