Rich in resources, yet buried at points beneath miles of ice, it is a vast expanse of land at the bottom of the world claimed by many countries. It is Antarctica. Now, with this one volume, your students can compare and contrast its peoples, customs, regions and political divisions. Topics and activities explored include: Locating Antarctica (it's place on the globe), Name the Hemisphere, Water and Landforms, Antarctica (black & white topographic map), Water Forms of Antarctica, Antarctica Cross Section, Geographic Regions, Ice, Ice and More Ice, Glaciers and Icebergs, The Antarctic Peninsula, Antarctic Plants and Animals, Plants in Antarctica, Animals in Antarctica, Penguins, Antarctic Penguins (chart of species), Krill and the Food Web, Antarctic Food Web, Amazing Antarctic Animals, Animal Report Note Taker, the Exploration, Exploring Antarctica (pages for a student-made book), a Time Line of Exploration, a Race to the South Pole, The People of Antarctica, Science Research Stations, Research Station Note Taker, Using a Compass Rose, How Far Is It?, Life at a Research Station, Scientists at Work, Who Owns Antarctica?, The Antarctic Treaty of 1959, the Arctic, Arctic Plants and Animals, People of the Arctic, Compare the Poles, Celebrating Learning, and more. Plus, a full-color fold-out topographic map of Antarctica and the oceans surrounding it.
