This interdisciplinary resource unit was compiled after several years of teaching polar regions to my own students. My favorite part in this resource is the included book/learning log--The ABC's of Polar Regions--however there are tons of other goodies included as well.
It is always so amazing to watch my students develop an understanding of geographic principles, critical thinking, and scientific awareness during this course of study! Key concepts include geography, climatology, animal adaptations, etc.
This unit may be used as a whole, or you may simply glean from it the portions which you feel are most beneficial for your own students. With 145 pages of activities, there are tons of lesson options to choose from. This unit includes study guides, word wall words, formal and informal assessments, reading comprehension pages, literature connections, creative thinking activities, writing activities, enrichment extensions, and much more...all centered around the study of polar regions!
I also find that this unit does a great deal to foster environmental understandings, curiosity, and global thinking among my students. I hope you enjoy and that your students learn and grow from these learning experiences!!!!!
