Synopsis

Amazing Arctic and Antarctic Projects You Can Build Yourself by Carmella Van Vleet

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 experiments--ranging from making an Inuit boat, polar bear paw prints, a model of a dog igloo, midnight rations, and snowshoes--provide children a chance to see polar principles in action, without major adult involvement or fancy materials.

Reviews

This truly fascinating book makes connections to history, math, and science while focusing mainly on the art and culture of ancient Egypt. -- School Arts Magazine, on Great Ancient Egypt Projects You Can Build Yourself It's much more than a project book ... The 12 chapters are clearly written and introduce the polar regions in a comprehensive way. -- 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! --CeciBooks Editorial and Publishing Consultancy Introduces readers to the animals and environments of the North and South poles, and then offers activities--from making a polar bear coin collector to sun goggles--to provide fun, hands-on learning. -- Cobblestone Magazine
