1 Arid, adaptation, drought, succulent, drought tolerant, drought avoiding. Starter How do plants and animals survive harsh desert conditions? Glue this into your book & label it to show danger in a desert. Must: describe how plants, animals & people have adapted to desert environments Should: explain how plants, animals & people have adapted to desert environments Could: show how desert plants/animals /people interact. Link the above to climate graph.

2 How do plants and animals survive harsh desert conditions? Arid, adaptation, drought, succulent, drought tolerant, drought avoiding. Must: describe how plants, animals & people have adapted to desert environments Should: explain how plants, animals & people have adapted to desert environments Could: show how desert plants/animals /people interact. Link the above to climate graph.

3 How do plants and animals survive harsh desert conditions? Arid, adaptation, drought, succulent, drought tolerant, drought avoiding. Die of thirst Could get lost Dangerous animals Poisonous plants Die of hunger Heat in the day Cold in the night Sinking sand Flash floods Local nomads Must: describe how plants, animals & people have adapted to desert environments Should: explain how plants, animals & people have adapted to desert environments Could: show how desert plants/animals /people interact. Link the above to climate graph.

4 How do plants and animals survive harsh desert conditions? Arid, adaptation, drought, succulent, drought tolerant, drought avoiding. AIMS Must: describe how plants, animals & people have adapted to desert environments Should: explain how plants, animals & people have adapted to desert environments Could: show how desert plants/animals /people interact. Link the above to climate graph. Must: describe how plants, animals & people have adapted to live within desert environments Should: explain how plants, animals & people have adapted to live within desert environments Could: show how desert plants/animals/people interact. Link the above to climate graph. Decide whether you would like to live in a desert environment.

5 Arid, adaptation, drought, succulent, drought tolerant, drought avoiding. There are 3 main ways that desert plants have adapted to arid climates. They are: Succulence: capture water and store it in their leaves, stems or roots. Drought tolerant plants: have strategies that help them tolerate drought Drought avoiding plants: only ‘live’ when there is water available. When it is dry they lie dormant. How do plants and animals survive harsh desert conditions? Must: describe how plants, animals & people have adapted to desert environments Should: explain how plants, animals & people have adapted to desert environments Could: show how desert plants/animals /people interact. Link the above to climate graph.

6 Arid, adaptation, drought, succulent, drought tolerant, drought avoiding. How do plants and animals survive harsh desert conditions? Succulence Succulent plants store water in their fleshy leaves, stems or roots. Desert rains are short and infrequent, so water must be captured and stored. TASK 1: draw this succulent plant and label it using the labels below. Shallow root systems Waxy stems and leaves Growth stops during drought Toxic spines Extension – Explain each label above &CategoryID=2307 Must: describe how plants, animals & people have adapted to desert environments Should: explain how plants, animals & people have adapted to desert environments Could: show how desert plants/animals /people interact. Link the above to climate graph.

7 Arid, adaptation, drought, succulent, drought tolerant, drought avoiding. How do plants and animals survive harsh desert conditions? Drought Tolerance This means having mechanisms to help to survive drought. TASK 2: draw this drought tolerant plant and label it using the labels below. During drought, plant sheds leaves Waxy leaves Deep roots Extension – Explain each label above. How might this plant be helpful for desert animals? Must: describe how plants, animals & people have adapted to desert environments Should: explain how plants, animals & people have adapted to desert environments Could: show how desert plants/animals /people interact. Link the above to climate graph.

8 Arid, adaptation, drought, succulent, drought tolerant, drought avoiding. How do plants and animals survive harsh desert conditions? Drought Avoidance These plants only survive one season to avoid drought completely. TASK 3: draw this drought avoidance plant and label it using the labels below. Seeds fall and last for years. The seedlings can survive very cold or dry conditions. The plant dies after a season. Extension – Explain each label above. Use your climate graph from last lesson to work out when these plants germinate. Must: describe how plants, animals & people have adapted to desert environments Should: explain how plants, animals & people have adapted to desert environments Could: show how desert plants/animals /people interact. Link the above to climate graph.

9 Arid adaptation, drought, succulent, drought tolerant, drought avoiding. How do plants and animals survive harsh desert conditions? 1. List four points shown on the sketch which describe the climate. 2. Name two types of plants that grow in the hot desert. 3. Explain 3 ways that these plants can survive in a climate short of water. Must: describe how plants, animals & people have adapted to desert environments Should: explain how plants, animals & people have adapted to desert environments Could: show how desert plants/animals /people interact. Link the above to climate graph.

10 How do plants and animals survive harsh desert conditions? Arid, adaptation, drought, succulent, drought tolerant, drought avoiding. AIMS Must: describe how plants, animals & people have adapted to desert environments Should: explain how plants, animals & people have adapted to desert environments Could: show how desert plants/animals /people interact. Link the above to climate graph. Must: describe how plants, animals & people have adapted to live within desert environments Should: explain how plants, animals & people have adapted to live within desert environments Could: show how desert plants/animals/people interact. Link the above to climate graph. Decide whether you would like to live in a desert environment.

11 =related Adaptatio n – changes in the body to fit a location! How do plants and animals survive harsh desert conditions? Extension – How does the camel use the plants in the desert? Now draw a snake. How do you think a snake has adapted to life in the desert? Animal Adaptation Watch this video and try to label the parts of the camel. Must: describe how plants, animals & people have adapted to desert environments Should: explain how plants, animals & people have adapted to desert environments Could: show how desert plants/animals /people interact. Link the above to climate graph. Arid, adaptation, drought, succulent, drought tolerant, drought avoiding.

12 How do plants and animals survive harsh desert conditions? Must: describe how plants, animals & people have adapted to desert environments Should: explain how plants, animals & people have adapted to desert environments Could: show how desert plants/animals /people interact. Link the above to climate graph. Arid, adaptation, drought, succulent, drought tolerant, drought avoiding.
