Day 5: "Deserts"

This is the final lesson for this unit. In the task, students are asked to use the information they have learned from previous lessons for Days 1-4 and evidence across the text to explain how plants, animals, and humans adapt to survive the harsh conditions of the desert environment. 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. They also need their responses to questions from Days 1-4.
