Discovering Life in The Polar Regions by Laura Judah is a wonderful unit study on the North and South Pole regions.
In Discovering Life in The Polar Regions you will find great information about these areas, and the life within them. You will learn science, like the kind of plants that grow, and animals that reside within them. For geography, you will learn which continents reside around the polar regions, and about the poles themselves.
There are also internet links and videos that help bring the study to life. You will also find detailed lapbooking component instructions, and pre-made lapbooking pieces. We have found lapbooking to be one of the most effective ways for our children to retain what they have learned.
This study suggests an age range of elementary to middle school grades, however I learned a lot myself with this study! I think with a couple added activities and research, this could also work for an older student as well, or could be combined with another study on this topic.
Grab a cup of hot cocoa, and get ready to learn about the fascinating Polar Regions!
I have received a copy of this unit study for the purpose of an honest review. All opinions are my own.
