    We just finished a desert unit. Here are some of the things I used. Books: Alejandro's Gift, Way Out In The Desert, The Desert Giant, Welcome To The Sea Of Sand, The Desert Alphabet Book, and Lost. We did a KWL chart--the favorite L was the arctic is a desert as a desert receives no more than 1o inches of rainfall or snowfall each year. We studied the adaptations of desert animals, focused on /st/ (goes with the book Lost), made desert collages out of torn paper, drew desert scenes on sandpaper, wrote about desert animals and published ina pop-up book format, made a class alphabet book. We also looked to find deserts on a map of the world and the Unted States. In the past we have written acrostic poems. We have also written math story problems about the desert. Hope this helps.
