Desert Animal Crafts and Activities for Kids

Deserts are areas with extreme temperatures and very little precipitation (rain or snow).  We tend to think of deserts as hot places (most of them are during they day)...  But they get extremely cold at night.  The desert in Antarctica is ALWAYS very cold.
