    a third of the land is desert.
    2. Name a desert ?
    the Sahara desert.
    3. What does adapted mean ?
    when you move to from a place to another place.
    4. What is another word for cold ?
    5. Would you visit a hot desert or cold desert and why?
    I would go to the cold desert as the sun is really hot in the summer time.


    The picture is of a Sahara Desert. I can see lots of sands, trees and the rising of the sunrise. I can smell the sand between my feet as i am walking. It makes me feel great and grateful as god, has made such a beautiful thing.
