Discover the science that helps people, plants and animals survive in the hottest, dryest places on Earth. This book examines the science skills you would need to survive in the desert. It begins with a map showing where deserts are in the world. The text then looks at this habitat's unique features and at how these features might help you to survive if you were on an expedition here. Aspects of survival are considered and each one is supported by a science activity which readers can perform using everyday materials and equipment. For example, it shows you what to wear, how to find food and drinking water, how to make a shelter, find your way, stay safe and, if necessary, be rescued. There is an easy-to-follow activity on every other spread.
