Cacti Fact Poster
Use Google Drawing to create a poster that shares lots of facts about cacti plants.
You might want to include:

Share your poster on your blog!
People find cactus in the desert or the middle of nowhere.
Cactus survive in the deserts so they don’t be eaten by any worms or caterpillars. Cactus also have spikes so if water goes them, there spikes grow and grow until summer.
