Exploring the Arctic
To start off the new year and our new topic, planet Earth, the children of year 2 got the chance to experience what it might be like to live in the Arctic! Our studio had been transformed into a frigid landscape filled with polar bears, howling winds and, of course, plenty of snow. The boys and girls had the opportunity to touch ice to get a feel for how cold the Arctic actually is. When we returned from our Arctic expedition, we discussed the sights, feels and sounds of the Arctic back in the warmth of our classroom.
