This week we will be learning to name the 7 continents on a world map.



The Kalahari Desert is in Africa. It is shown in red on this map.



Have a look at these two photos. One is of the Kalahari Desert, the other one is a photo of the polar desert of Antarctica. How are they the same? How are they different?



Watch this video showing how meerkats find their food and make their homes in the desert environment.

Talk to your helper about the features that meerkats have that make them really good at digging and eating insects.

Can you make a food chain to show where meerkats get the energy they need to survive?


Draw and label a meerkat to show its features.
