Chalking a Desert Landcape
Transcript of Chalking a Desert Landcape
With our artist inspiration, contemporary artist Sushe Felix!
Desert Plant Life
A cactus can live in a desert, unlike most plants, because it stores water in it's roots when it rains. In this spring, the cactus flowers.
Adding Desert Details
You can see Sushe added these details to her desert landscape. Can you spot them? Can you explain the difference in size between the plants?
Landscapes have three parts. Do you know them? So far, you have created a background and a middle ground. Our next step is to complete our middle ground by chalking cliffs.
Animals of the Southwestern Desert
It's hard to believe that so many animals can survive in the desert. Here is a list of the ones that live in the Southwestern United States. What desert animals can you think of that live in other parts of the world?
Let's Get Started!
First we'll work on our middle ground cliffs. From there, be thinking of what plants and animal life you will want to include in your landscape!
Deserts around the World
What is a desert? How would you describe it? Where are deserts?
Deserts have the hottest and driest climates in the world. They can be as hot as 120 degrees during the day and receive as little as three inches of rain yearly. You can find deserts in Southwestern America, Mexico, the Sahara Desert in Northern Africa, the Australian outback as well as India.
The Joshua Tree is named after a religious pioneer. It has two root systems: one for holding water and the other for creating new bulbs for trees.
Do you see the plant in the corner? That's what's called a desert spoon. The Native Americans used this plan for basket and mat making.
