What Do People Know about the Arctic and Antarctic?
National Geographic Xpeditions
It's common to confuse characteristics of the Arctic and the Antarctic, and many people have never learned the differences between these two regions.
In this lesson, students will research the landscapes, climates, and animal life of the Polar Regions. They will then interview people to find out what they think and know about the regions. They will conclude by writing paragraphs explaining why it's important to know about the Polar Regions and detailing the differences between the two regions.
