We are learning about the Polar Regions. Here's what we learned:
The Arctic is frozen ocean. It is very cold. It is also called the North Pole. Polar bears live there. Some other animals that live there are whales, narwhals, snowy owls, puffins, lemmings, seals, arctic fox, snowshoe hares, and wolves. We live close to the Arctic circle.
Antarctica is a continent. It is frozen land. It is even colder than the Arctic. It is the coldest place on earth. Peguins live there. They have never seen polar bears. Only scientists live in Antarctica because it is too cold.
Both places are have sunshine all the time for 6 months, and darkness all the time for 6 months. We can't imagine playing on our playground in the dark, or going to school in the dark.
