There are two different types of grasslands Tropical grasslands and Temperate grassland which both have hot summers and cold winters. Tropical Grassland are slightly hotter then Temperate Grasslands. Grassland receive about ten inches of rain each year. If grassland received more water they would become a forest if they recived less they would become a dessert. Grassland also have very rich soil that make it easy for things to grow.
There are many different kinds of plants that live in grasslands such as milkweed, poison Ivy,Prairie Blazingstar, Sweet Cornflower, Purple Cornflower, etc. There are also trees that can be found around the prairie field that shelter some of these plants.
North America used to be covered in grasslands full of bison and pronghorns but however those herds are almost gone now many of the prairies have been converted into farmlands killing off these herds because or the soil being so rich.
