Learning About the Desert

Contributor :

Action Plan

I will be taking photographs of uses of art in architecture, clothing, jewelry, fabric, paintings and whatever else I may discover to incorporate into an art lesson. I will also take photos of the desert excursion to share.

Pre-Departure Preparation

In science I teach a large unit on biomes around the world. In Morocco I will see and experience being in a desert. I will take photographs to share with the students about the climate, animals, plants, and other main characteristics of a desert habitat. I would also like to incorporate an art lesson that has something to do with Morocco.

Preparation During Travel

I will research art of Morocco as it is used in everyday life.
