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. This engaging primary school classroom resource will enable your pupils 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.
