This half term we will be learning all about the Arctic and the North Pole. We will be learning about the animals that live there and how they are specially adapted to survive in the freezing conditions.
Task 1 Science
To get you started, watch the short video clip called A Walk in the Arctic to find out about the weather conditions and the animals that live at the North Pole.
Then have a look at the document called Arctic Animal Habitats.
Choose one of the animals you have found out about, and do a careful drawing and write three facts about how their bodies are adapted to survive in the Arctic.
Task 2 Art
WALT make an Polar diorama
A diorama is like a ‘small world’ scene, a bit like a miniature film set!
You will need:•a small box, about the size of a shoe box to get started
You can be as creative and imaginative as you like! There is no right or wrong way to do this, so long as your finished diorama makes you feel a bit chilly when you look at it!You could make stand up models of some of the animals that live in the Arctic or Antarctica, drawing them on to paper or card. You could even try and make a miniature Scientific Research Station!
