Geography for little ones...
This Antarctic Journal is written just like a journal - real fun to read with the kids!
The other book, Frozen Worlds - has wonderful photos!
Notice the Princess' Shoes...LOL
So we are still studying Antarctica all month and today we really got into the climate and geography of this fascinating Continent. I was teaching the girls the difference between the Arctic and Antarctica.
Simply put: the Arctic is a body of water surrounded by land. Antarctica is a body of land surrounded by water. THAT they understood! Also interesting - Penguins DO NOT live at the North Pole but millions of them live at the South Pole. So you won't see a Polar Bear feasting on Penguins any time soon 8)
Besides our Globe (Leap Frog) we are using a new interactive device - the ITIKES I explore Maps. We just broke it out today and started playing around with it. Scratched the surface...it is interactive with my IPhone also - have to figure that part out! I will tell you more about this once we get the hang of it.
Tomorrow we are heading to The Bronx Zoo to see the Penguins in action!
