Grassland Unit Study Resources

Grassland Unit Study ResourcesGrassland is a habitat where a few trees can grow and where grass is the acceptable mostly. Grassland is mainly divided into the temperate grassland or the prairie, which is located further from the equator, and the savannah, which is in the tropical area. Grassland is a semi-desert habitat which is dry and has grass. It is not as dry as the desert, but it is not like the forest. Therefore, when a grassland habitat gets drier, it can change into desert. By learning about grassland, children are asked to maintain their habitat so that it doesn't get worse.

Today I will be very happy to share with my readers the Grassland unit study resources. Scroll down to the bottom and you will get 69 The Grassland Notebooking Pages for FREE if you are quite lucky or you can purchase it for only $3.95.
