Here are the resources we used:
We watched Frozen Planet on BBC iplayer (it's now available on DVD) - I previewed each episode and told the girls roughly what was going to happen and they chose not to watch some of the scenes where some of the animals didn't survive - we're animal lovers here!
For each episode of Frozen Planet we took notes and then recorded the seasonal changes in words and/or pictures.
We used Enchanted Learning for worksheets.
We used the books Frozen Planet and Planet Arctic (which were reduced and available at The Book People at the time) for more information and photos, as well as library books including books on the stories of Sir Ernest Shackleton, Captain James Cook, Matthew Henson and Robert Peary.
We made some Arctic collages, after learning about Aurora Borealis (the Northern Lights).
We learnt about the Inuit and their culture which linked in brilliantly with our next project which was on Native American Indians. We made Inuit mittens out of felt:
There was no field trip for this project!
