Desert in a Shoe Box (to be implemented over the next few weeks)

Note: Please try not to start making this shoe box just yet; Mrs Willis is planning a series of lessons for us so that we can progress our skills in small steps. Thank you.


This week, can you plan your design for your desert in a shoebox?  What materials will you need?  Which desert animals will you include?  Will you include a cactus? Will you be able to use some real sand for the floor?  Can you draw a 2D picture of your design and label some of the things that you will need?


OPTIONAL: How to Draw A Desert Scene for Beginners

Some of you might be inspired to have a go at this!
