Great resources for the Penguin and Antarctica Unit Study. I have the Draw Write Now and the Around the World in 180 Days books. I forget I have some of these wonderful resources. I think I will start pulling them out and re looking at them.
It’s been in the negative degrees here lately too! Great time to do an Antarctica study =) Thanks for sharing your ideas!
