Polar Adventure: Second Level

In this workshop we investigate the differences between the Arctic and the Antarctic, including the challenges these environments face as a result of climate change. We explore how animals are adapted to survive in these extreme environments and provide opportunities for pupils to handle objects and take part in group activities promoting critical thinking and discussion skills.
