The focus question for Day 2 of this unit asks students to use text evidence to explain how a withered plant survives in the extreme heat of the desert. It addresses the big takeaway idea of how plants are affected by the harsh conditions of the desert (heat, dryness) and how they have adapted to survive those conditions. This series of close reading lesson plans was created by a member of the 2015 Delaware Dream Team. Special Materials: Students will need a copy of "Deserts" by Gail Gibbons.
