A desert is a piece of land that receives a low amount of rain. Less enough to help support most plants.
We learned that there are many different kinds of deserts. There are Sand Deserts, Stony Deserts, Rock Deserts, Plateau Deserts, Mountain Deserts, and Trade Wind Deserts.
Next what we learned about is where the Sonoran Desert is. It is in Mexico, California, and Arizona.
Finally we learned about the plants in the Sonoran desert. Some of them are Barrel Cactus, Brittlebush, Desert Ironwood, and a Chain Fruit Cholla.
By the way…we took all of these pictures in the desert wash behind our class. Cool, huh?
