Travel the World - The Poles and Ocean

I admit it. Originally, I was going to skip over these areas.

We had finished Australia, and it was very close to the end of the school I thought perhaps we should just wrap up our trip around the world in the Land Down Under.

Alas, I got to thinking that maybe we could just squeeze in a few days for the poles and the ocean waters that covers more than 70% of our planet. Our youngest son had completed an extensive ocean unit last year for science. {I've included the links at the bottom of this post.} Therefore, we spent only a little time reviewing the ocean waters and instead, spent the majority of our time learning about the polar regions.

The idea for this penguin craft was found here.

Since I was trying to fit this unit into less than a week of school days, I opted to forgo many hands on projects. However, I did find the following ideas which could easily be added to this unit.
