Amazing Arctic & Antarctic Projects You Can Build Yourself by

The faraway lands of the North and South Poles are examined in this revealing guide, enabling children to explore the coldest places on Earth from the warmth of their homes. From polar exploration and penguins to Inuit cultures and the tundra, simple yet thorough explanations are provided for a range of Arctic and Antarctic topics while copious vocabulary notes and fun factoids enrich the material. More than two dozen interactive projects and experimentsranging from making an Inuit boat, polar bear paw prints, a model of a dog igloo, midnight rations, and snowshoesprovide children a chance to see polar principles in action, without major adult involvement or fancy materials.


It's much more than a project book ... The 12 chapters are clearly written and introduce the polar regions in a comprehensive way, explaining the harsh climates that result from the Earth's tilt, the habitats and inhabitants (both animal and human), exploration and explorers, the lifestyle and research taking place in Antarctica, and the impact of global warming on the poles. The hands-on activities include science experiments, games, and crafts that range from papier-mache to sewing and carpentry. School Library Journal Clearly illustrated projects appear with well-written lessons ... A great glossary, and good vocabulary sidebars. Bonus: Printed on recycled content paper, with a note on the Green Press Initiative at front, this book's publisher walks the talk!
