The resource contains images and information about modern day Egypt, life in Ancient Egypt, the pharoahs, mummification, gods and the River Nile.

ANIMAL ODDITIES PART 2 -THREE ANIMALS OF THE RED SAND DUNES OF NAMIBIA - SW AFRICA

ANIMAL ODDITIES PART 2 -THREE ANIMALS OF THE RED SAND DUNES OF NAMIBIA - SW AFRICA

Each of these animals adapt to the hot Namibian Desert in ways that are a little odd. See how the lizard copes when it moves across the very hot sand. Find out how the black dune beetle collects and then drinks the benefits of the Atlantic fog. Find the large white spider and understand why it becomes annoyed and how it operates a strange tactic to avoid predators - and annoying guides. This unit can stand on its own or it can be a part of this 3 -part series. If you are investigating deserts, animal adaptations, locational studies (Africa) or widening world locational knowledge this unit will assist. Go into the large red sand hills. Find these animals, but be careful where you place your feet. This material has appeal at Primary levels and as a support for units on hot deserts at Secondary levels. The attachments will help to test the student level of understanding.
