Fourth graders examine the regions where cacti grow in their natural habitat. They determine how the cacti thrive in the hot, dry environment of the Sonoran Desert. They examine images of cacti in books, locate the Yuma area on maps, and determine which characteristics of the cacti allow it to grow in the desert. Finally, they write about and illustrate the concepts that were discussed in the lesson.
