  • Animals Camel Fennec Fox Scimitar horned Oryx Sand Snake
  • Two toes to help balance on shifting sand To keep cool To store fuel during days without food or water To keep sand out of eyes and mouth Light coat to reflect heat To protect joints
  • Fennec Fox Long ears to get rid of excess heat Eyes that can see clearly in darkness so it can catch prey Comes out at night to avoid heat of the day
  • Hides under tail to protect self from sun
  • Vegetation Barrel Cactus Joshua Tree Prickly Pear Cactus Thorns to deter predators Long roots to store water Flowers can grow even in times of severe lack of water Xerophytes
  • A wide-spreading network of shallow roots harvests the desert rains; a mature plant may soak up as much as 200 gallons of water during a storm. Waxy skin to reflect heat Stores water in times of moisture and plumps up Becomes ridged and thin during very dry periods Saguaro Cactus
  • Humans in the desert Headscarf to protect from heat and sand storms Loose fitting clothes to disperse heat around White- to reflect the heat Open shoes to allow feet to breathe Sandals to protect heat from hot sand
  • Clothing Footwear How does it walk on sand? How does it get water Where does it store water? relationships How does it stop sand getting in its eyes?
  • Desert Vegetation
    • Use the sheets and video notes to
    • Design a poster showing how humans, plants and animals have adapted to life in the desert
    • Cut the pictures out and stick them on to your poster then add labels to show how they have adapted
  • Today's task
    • Produce an A3 poster
    • showing how
    • Animals and
    • Plants
    • Have adapted to life in the harsh, hot, dry climate of the desert
    • You must include annotated (labeled) pictures
    • And explain how each have adapted in terms of
    • Coping with extreme heat
    • Coping with lack of water
    • Escaping predators
    You have this lesson ONLY to complete this task
