Product Description
I created this 24-day unit to cover Virginia standards 2.4, 2.5, and 2.7 on animal life cycles, adaptations, and throw in a little geography for History standards!

Students focus on animals on the continent of Antarctica, exploring both the continent's features, the Southern Ocean, and its inhabitants.

Then students shift to the Arctic circle, studying the 3 continents and Arctic Ocean, as well as its animals inhabitants.

Students also study migration with whales (instead of the traditional birds and butterflies) and how they adapt to the weather of their environment.


It was a memorable unit for my students and was a great way to go beyond the study of frogs, butterflies, etc. to cover these standards.

(Note to Virginia teachers: I did take a day to study the white-tailed deer and we compared with the animals in these colder climates!)

This packet includes:
*nonfiction passages (e-books and printables) links from "Beyond Penguins and Polar Bears"
*Internet links to wiki pages containing information and videos about animals and geography
*animal diagrams and life cycles
*activity pages about the geography of the polar regions
*science experiments
*Google Earth virtual field trip of the polar regions, including features of Antarctica
*additional resources from Sea World
*activities based on "The Emperor's Egg" by Martin Jenkins
and more!
