Concept Mapping – Deserts

I’ll shortly be finishing a unit on ecosystems and want to check my student’s understanding of desert environments. To do this I’ve created a desert concept map activity that they will complete to give me an indication of what they do and don’t understand to focus revision before they complete the end of unit assessment.

First, they will be given a list of key words relating to desert environments.

Second they are to select words that are connected and they will link them on a piece of A3 paper.
