|Create a Polar Creature|
In this classroom activity, students consider what features an ideal creature would have to thrive in the extreme habitat of Antarctica, which has ice floes, katabatic winds, and subzero temperatures. They use recycled materials to construct a polar creature that is ideally suited to life in Antarctica. They then document their creation with a field guide entry. The printable four-page handout includes a series of inquiry-based questions, illustrated activity directions, and a worksheet that includes brainstorming questions, areas for recording their answers, and directions for creating the field guide entry.
