About

Overview

The climate in the Great Plains is extreme. Winds blown from the Arctic and the Gulf of Mexico reach the Great Plains because there are few trees to slow down the wind. So people experience everything from Arctic cold to hot winds. Buffalo once roamed freely on the flat plains that were formed by glaciers long ago. Visit Mount Rushmore, the Black Hills, and Badlands. Make sure you pack for any kind of weather if you visit the Great Plains! This book will allow students to know and use various text features to locate key facts or information in a text efficiently.
