The students are continuing to work on their Arctic Animals unit in Science. Because we are physically unable to visit the Arctic or the Antarctic, the students watched a documentary about the habitats of the different animals instead called Frozen Planet.
The documentary is very informative and covers many different animals – even ones that we will not be learning about in depth – and I highly recommend watching the first episode again with your child at home.
They are discussing the basic similarities and differences between the animals diets, habitats, appearances, and adaptations, etc. Our class is focusing their attention on penguins. polar bears, orcas, and arctic foxes.
