Welcome to the land of hot sands and even hotter sun… and the land of snow dunes and permafrost! In this BrainPOP movie, Tim and Moby will be your guides through the weird and wonderful world of deserts. You’ll learn why deserts have extreme temperatures, what an oasis is, and what a cold desert is. Tim will show you how permanent high pressure systems around the planet lead to the dry air that forms deserts. And finally, you’ll discover how the plants and animals that live there have evolved to cope with their harsh habitats. Anyone else getting thirsty?
