WHEN WAS THE SAHARA DESERT FORMED?

Until about 6,000 years ago, the Sahara in northern Africa was a fertile plain. Many animals roamed across the grassland. There were also many people, herding their animals from pasture to pasture or farming the land. Then the climate began to change. Less rain fell, and the dry land turned to desert.
Today, the Sahara is the earth’s largest desert. And it is growing in size every year.
