Desert Ecosystems (Chrissy)

Note: This class is open to high school students only.

This will be the third ecosystem class installment that will focus on the earth’s deserts. In this class, students will focus on all types of desert ecosystems which make up around 1/5th of the total landmass of our earth. While students will study different kinds of deserts, one thing they all have in common is they are all arid or dry. That does not mean they are lifeless areas – on the contrary, deserts are home to vast numbers of plants, animals, and organisms.

Students will have weekly homework that will build their knowledge of these unique and sensitive ecosystems.
