Is a polar bear really white? How much snow does Antarctica get? How many layers of clothing do people need to wear to stay warm? Students learn about the polar regions and how animals and people suit themselves for survival. The location and climate of both the Arctic and Antarctic regions are studied. Focus is on adaptations including physical and behavioral changes. Students discuss how people gear up to live in these harsh areas.
