I found it fitting that on the day we started learning about Arctic Animals, the temperature outside was this:
No joke, folks. This was the temperature according to my car when I got to school. I watched it go from –11 to –19 on my drive. With the wind chill it was about –30. YUCK.
While we read If You Could Go To Antarctica, we created mental images about what it would look like and feel like there. um. All we needed to do was look out our window. We learned that Antarctica is the coldest place on Earth. Guess what the temperature was at 10 a.m.?? ND: –19, Antarctica 32. I guess we got them beat.
