Survival in the Sahara Desert

Page history last edited by PBworks 14 years, 7 months ago


Using the Main Idea Chart list the details and main ideas about the plants, animals, and people that live in the Sahara Desert.  Then use your chart to summarize the information.


Think and Compare

1. Skim page 7.  Describe ways that the jerboa can escape predators that maybe lurking nearby.


2. Describe a way in which you have adapted to the climate where you live.  How is it similar to or different from the adaptations of the people who live in the Sahara?


3. Bringing water from deep under the ground has changed some parts of the desert.  Is this a good thing?  Why or why not?

Pretend you are a traveler in the Sahara Desert.  Write a journal entry of an eyewitness account of your first impressions.
