To complete the unit on biomes students investigated how deserts are expanding. The theme of change and sustainability can be seen throughout the course and by exploring desertification it allowed the students to link the weather and climate unit to biomes. They answered questions such as 'Who is to blame for desertification?' 'Can desertification be controlled?' 'Is it caused by nature?'. To show their understanding students wrote a five paragraph essay to answer the question 'Desertification is caused by humans' discuss.
