The world’s deserts are very dry places. Not much rain falls in a desert.

It is hot in the day, but it can be cold at night.

Deserts are found on the coast.

Plants live in deserts. To survive in these dry places, they must have special features.

The cactus is the most famous desert plant.

The shape of this cactus means that it can swell up to store water when it rains.

People called nomads live in the desert.

Deserts are places on Earth where hardly any rain falls. The weather is dry all year round. Deserts can be hot or cold.

They may be mountain areas or really flat – and can be rocky or sandy. Deserts are all different!

Animals find smart ways to survive in deserts. How is a camel suited to life in a desert?

• Camels have long eyelashes to protect their eyesfrom dust.

• They can close their nostrils too!

• Camels store fat in their humps. They get energyfrom this fat, so they can go for many days withoutfood.

People live in deserts. Some of these people are called nomads. They don’t have a home in one place. Instead, they move around, sleeping in tents.

Oases are places where water is found in a desert.

People and deserts

Special plants grow in deserts. The cactus is the most famous. Be careful, because just like the desert lizard, it’s spiky!

The ribs of this cactus can swell as the plant’s roots suck up water after a rain shower.

The little lizard (shown above) uses camouflage to hide from other animals that might eat it. Its spikes or thorny scales also help to protect it.

DESERTS

Key words:

An oasis in the Sahara Desert

The Atacama Desert is in Chile

The Sahara is a massive desert found in North Africa. It is about the same size as the USA and covers parts of eleven different countries!

Sand dunes in the Sahara’s sand seas (ergs) can grow to 180 metres in height. That’s taller than a stack of 40 double decker buses!

The Atacama Desert, in South America, is the driest desert in the world. In some areas, weather stations have never recorded rain.

Plants and animals that live in this extreme place use water in the fog that forms over the hills in the Atacama to stay alive.
