Quench your thirst for knowledge with The Digital Field Trip to The Desert. Let us transport you to five North American desert locations using QuickTime Virtual Reality. Visit the surprisingly lush, green Sonoran Desert, the brightly colored landscape of the Painted Desert and the Cattail Falls oasis in Big Bend National Park. Explore the barren landscape of the Black Rock Desert or experience the blinding glare and oppressive heat of Death Valleywithout the heat stroke.
However, like our other award-winning programs, the field trip is just the starting point. Students and nature enthusiasts will learn about all aspects of desert ecology in four other major sections of this comprehensive package:
Discover what makes a desert a desert. Learn about all of the world's major desert regions, including pictures collected from all over the planet.
See the processes that formed and shape the deserts. Topics include: rocks and minerals, how wind and water can affect the landscape, weathering and a landforms quiz.
The Desert Study includes an extensive section on the ways desert plants and animals are adapted to survive the challenges of living in arid regions. You can also create your own desert ecosystem in the Build-a-Desert game using the more than 50 organisms featured in The Digital Field Trip to The Desert. Also in this section is a primer on homeostasis.
Examine how human impact and desertification shape and distort deserts, and how arid lands contribute to the over-all health of the planet.
Like all Digital Frog International products, The Digital Field Trip to The Desert also includes a host of other features:
Student and teacher materials are included with the program, allowing you to print just what you need, when you need it.
