At the opposite ends of the earth, lie the coldest places on our planet.
Bitterly cold winds whip across a landscape where temperatures fall far below freezing. Over millions of years, species have evolved to survive in these extreme conditions. Yet the polar regions are under threat.
Our fantastic new FREE downloadable Ends of the Earth resource pack and photocards provide a range of exciting curriculum linked activities for pupils aged 4-11. The resources help children to explore the poles, getting a sense of the beautiful - but challenging - environment. They’ll also get to meet the polar bears of the Arctic and the penguins of the Antarctic, finding out how they’ve evolved to survive in these extreme conditions.
