Deserts & Plant Adaptations

author avatar

You’re buying this resource from mullarkey


Pupils will be able to enquire and ask / research a series of questions, using a data capture sheet. Pupils will know what the definition of a desert is and name an example of at least one and know how desert plants are adapted to their environment.

The resources are differentiated so that higher ability pupils can ask further / higher level questions and the structure of the enquiry sheet can suggest/prompt lower ability pupils for answers. the plenery is a fun idea and it works well with year 8 pupils... surprising how much they can recall.
