Home in the Desert: Lesson for Use with This House is Made of Mud

Third graders examine how a family modifies their environment to create a home out of mud. They read the book "This House is Made of Mud" by Ken Buchanan, and write a description of their own home that compares the home of mud to their own house. Students also complete the chart "Geographic Characteristics of Place."
