For parents
Camels are known to be able to store water for long periods of time, but your kids need lots of water daily. Show them this illustration of how their bodies uses water, and follow these suggestions to help them (and you) meet daily fluid needs.
For kids
The Earth is getting warmer. One reason is people add heat‐trapping gases to the atmosphere, mainly by burning fossil fuels. Warmer temperatures cause other changes, including droughts in some parts of the world. Learn about climate change, and how you can be part of the solution.
For teachers
Camels have adapted to their desert habitat. How do people adapt? The curriculum People and Place: Curriculum Resources on Human-Environmental Interactions provides case studies from around the world of people surviving in extreme climates in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. Designed for the sixth‐grade level, the activities can be modified for older or younger students.
