2: Introduction: Dear Class, The work on the following pages reflect the research that I conducted over the summer of 2011. The reason that I chose to write about the Colorado life zones is that it is an important part of social studies learning in fourth grade. On the following pages, you will find pictures, poetry, and biographies that blend together to provide information on the people, plants, and animals that make each of the zones unique and special. Enjoy, Ms. Bladt

4: America the Beautiful by Katharine Lee Bates O beautiful for spacious skies, For amber waves of grain, For purple mountain majesties Above the fruited plain! America! America! God shed His grace on thee, And crown thy good with brotherhood From sea to shining sea! | The Plains

5: The American Buffalo *Is 5-6 ft. tall at the shoulders and can weight 2,000-3,000 lbs. *Can run long distances at a time and need little water. *Needs space because they can be aggressive. | The Prickly Pear *Is just one type of plant that thrives in this zone. *In order to survive, a plant living in this zone must be able to survive the hot summers and the cold winters. *Have deep roots to help it survive the wind. *Other examples are Blue Grama Grass and Buffalo Grass. | Plants and Animals
