Desert Habitats

During our habitats unit I had my students make their own deserts.
 You can see the science book next to them with the instructions.
 I bought little catcus' at the dollar store. I got lucky and happened to find them there.
 They collected rocks and I bought in the sand. 50 lb bag at Orchard for $5.
 Shoe boxes and plastic wrap for the liner. I chose blue to represent the water below the soil.

After they were done we displayed them for about a month then good behavior kids got to take them home. The kids had a blast.
