Grasslands are big open spaces. They have about 10 to 30
inches of rain per year. More rain and grasslands would become a forest. Any less,
they would become a desert. Grasslands are often found between deserts and forests.
What Is a Grassland?
There are not many bushes in the grassland. Trees are found only by
rivers and streams. The
grassland seems like an endless ocean of grass.
Many farms are in the grasslands. The soil is very rich. Crops grow
well in the grasslands.
When you first think of deserts and forests, the
grassland appears to be boring. But it isn't!
But you will discover the grasslands
are more interesting than you think!
