The faraway lands of the North and South Poles are examined in this revealing guide, enabling children to explore the coldest places on Earth from the warmth of their homes. From polar exploration and penguins to Inuit cultures and the tundra, simple yet thorough explanations are provided for a range of Arctic and Antarctic topics while copious vocabulary notes and fun factoids enrich the material. More than two dozen interactive projects and experiments—ranging from making an Inuit boat, polar bear paw prints, a model of a dog igloo, midnight rations, and snowshoes—provide children a chance to see polar principles in action, without major adult involvement or fancy materials.
