This week 2nd class learned all about the Arctic region, the northernmost part of the Earth. We learnt all about the animals that live there and created some amazing chalk pastel pictures of them.
We learnt that these animals, like living things all over the world are INTERDEPENDENT. Can you remember what this means? We made FOOD CHAINS which show how we depend on other living things to survive.
We imagined what it would be like to visit the Arctic and wrote postcards to 2nd class back in Dublin from the Arctic.
We learnt a new song called Okki-Tokki-Unga about an Inuit in the Arctic who went fishing for a seal. We made up actions to the song to tell his story.
Thank you Lydia for bringing in her David Attenborough DVD about the Arctic. Here’s a clip from the DVD
Next week we will be learning about the Antarctic, the most sothern region on Earth. We are looking forward to comparing the two polar regions.
