ANTARCTICA Activity Book | South Pole Continent Study: Expeditions, Seals, Penguins, Glaciers & Snowflakes Hands-on Activities!
Travel to the continent of Antarctica from the comfort (and warmth) of home. This interactive activity bundle includes our signature Info Poster, Flag & Historical Timeline of Antarctic Exploration. Learn fun facts about this incredible continent with our sixteen ring cards, featuring full color illustrations.
Learn about some of the research stations of Antarctica from countries around the world. Each card includes flag and a small writeup about each, including a location for each. Pin these locations on a full color map of the continent, and learn about the major geographical locations, including ice shelves, surrounding seas, landmasses and geographical areas of interest. Learn about the Antarctica Treaty, created in 1959 which helps keep Antarctica free and safe.
The South Pole (and North Pole) experience a phenomena of polar day (six months) and polar night (six months) because of their extreme locations on the earth's axis and the 23.5' tilt. Learn how sunlight is affected on different areas of latitude/longitude around the world with our exclusive slider design and experiment with the rays of the sun using a flashlight and a DIY globe.
Learn about the various expeditions of the Heroic Age of Antarctic exploration with information cards included the vessel used, leader, dates and events. Learn sailing ship classifications and create your own sail configuration with a fun nautical-themed craft. Learn about the famous explorers of Antarctic with standup cutouts and create your own vintage snow goggles and learn about the polar gear used during the Heroic Age.
Practice early reading by reading the story of the Scott/Amundsen race to the South Pole. Experiment with various forms of early snow travel with faux snow and test hypothesis and record experiment results in a STEM-themed activity. Consider what you would bring on a trip to Antarctica and make a banjo craft of the famous banjo that kept moral up after Shackleton's ship was lost in the ice. Play checkers, a board game used during polar explorations. Finally try your hand at making hoosh, a common meal made from pemmican, biscuits and melted snow.
Also included in a 3D model of the Penguin Post Office, a United Kingdom station located on Port Lockroy, Antarctica. Learn how postage stamps are designed and create your own with a interactive worksheet. Speaking a penguins, Antarctica is home to eight species and two exclusively. Learn their habitat zones and read about each penguin species with full color gorgeous watercolor info cards.
Penguins also range in size, so compare and contrast sizing with our Units of Measurement activity featuring the penguins of Antarctica.

Practice counting 1-20 with the adorable penguin counting activity and practice the penguin egg waddle of the emperor penguin.
Compare and contrast how the North Vs. South Pole differ with our Venn diagram. Match Antarctic animals into the artic desert habitat match puzzle. See how animals have adapted to stay warm in the freezing temperatures with the blubber experiment. Create eight Antarctic animal finger puppets and a puppet of a fur seal out of a paper bag. Can you mimic the sound of a fur seal?
Learn about the different types of glaciers and experiment how variables like mass and additives affect melting. Because Antarctica receives so little snowfall, it technically is a desert due to precipitation levels. Learn about humidity and temperature can affect snowflake formation and match some of the major snowflakes designs with exclusive line art made specifically for this bundle. Cut snowflakes out of paper using designs of six major plane designs of snowflakes. Practice cursive tracing and label each one. Lastly, make beautiful snowflakes designs out of salt and watercolors, including templates.
