The Tundra–Antarctica–Inuits

October 29, 2010 at 2:06 am 2 comments

I’m mixing things up a bit this year. I usually do science half the year and history half the year, but I am combining the two for the rest of the school year. We are studying earth science and geography/cultures as our themes.

For this next phase in our school year, we started off with the tundra and paired it with Antarctica and the Inuits. Here is some of what we did.

Tundra — This is a great website for all the different biomes.

Antarctica — A game about Antarctica and the research there–includes a lot of history. You don’t have to know anything ahead of time. I didn’t do it all fancy like they tell you to. I just printed it black and white on plain paper and made things work just fine.

My two older kids each did a lapbook piece about Antarctica for our wall map. I got the pieces from HERE.

Inuits — lapbook about the Inuits (Eskimos)  This has lots of writing space. I had my five year old do some of the pieces and just gave him different directions. On this piece he wrote the names of the animals instead of their uses as was instructed.

This piece made it onto our wall map.

Write your name in Inuktitut

You can find biomes on the Biology page of the Links blog. You can find Antarctica and the Inuits on the Geography/Cultures page.
