Sonoran Desert…the Facts!

Posted on

Hi, Gabe and I did some research on the Sonoran Desert.  Why, you ask?  Well, let me tell you.  

Here we are fishing on a field trip. Sorry, didn't catch any fish. This manmade lake is in the Sonoran Desert, too.

We live in the Sonoran Desert. Our school is in the Sonoran Desert.  We thought it would be important to know some facts about where we live.  In class, we learned about the different types of writing.  One that we spend a lot of time on is nonfiction text.  Sometimes nonfiction text is called expository or informational text.  It all means the same.  This kind of writing is about real stuff. There won’t be any speaking kangaroos or flying pigs in this kind of writing. There are just facts about a topic.

What topic would you like to learn more about?

Hi, this is Gabe.  Here is the information we found.  We put it in a Power Point presentation.  Then Mrs. Fraher used Slide Rocket so we could show it on our blog and at our Tech Fest at the end of the year.  You will also see Christian’s presentation on what collaboration is and who we worked with while doing Project Feeder Watch.  All of the pictures in the presentation are ones that our class and Mrs Fraher took around our school using our class digital cameras and iPads.

Let us know what you learned.
