Let's Save Antarctica:
Why we must protect our planet.

Discover why we must protect Antarctica from climate change.

Home to millions of penguins, ancient dinosaur fossils and huge blue whales, Antarctica is our last great wilderness. This fascinating picture book brings to life this extreme and exciting continent for young children, exploring its icy landscape and extraordinary wildlife. It also shows the incredible scientific research that happens there and therefore why it is so important that we act to protect this special part of the planet from climate change and plastic pollution.

Year 2: Habitats: Polar
Investigate blubber using icy water and learn about the Antarctica food chain through interactive cards. Discover polar habitats and map the region.

Year 3: Wonderful Water
This topic takes an in-depth look into how the Water cycle works and particularly the differences between fresh and salt water. Go on a body of water field trip and discover the lost art of filtering dirty water into cleaner water. Your child will also create a land erosion model to work out how rivers are formed.
