Their collective stories of adaptation and survival are fascinating, presenting a strong point of interest for story building.

  • 8  sentence starters that depict desert animals seen during the day (woodpecker, kit fox, tortoise, horned lizard); and animals active at night (elf owl, coyote, jack rabbit, bat)
  • 8 nouns (black)

  • 8 capitalized articles  “A” and “An”  (lt. blue)
  • 8 prepositional phrases
