Field Trip Friday: The Arctic Circle

Grab your coat because we are headed to the Arctic Circle! 

 

 

Discussion: 

Do you remember hearing about the midnight sun? That is when the sun never sets and there is daylight all day. This happens around the summer solstice.  Talk about how this would make you feel.

How do you think it affects the animals? How does it affect the way they get their food or how they stay safe from predictors?

 

Do you remember hearing about the polar night? That is when the sun never rises and it is dark all day. This happens around the winter solstice.  Talk about how this would make you feel.

How do you think it affects the animals? How does it affect the way they get their food or how they stay safe from predictors?

 

Animal Journal: 

Fold a paper into 6 pieces by folding it lengthwise once and widthwise twice. In each of the squares, draw a picture of an animal that lives in the Arctic. Under your picture write the letter sounds you hear in the name of that animal (for example, "tmpr swn" or "t s" for trumpeter swan. 

Ideas- fish, bear, fox, musk ox, caribou, trumpeter swan, wolverine, humpback whales, walrus, and polar bear

 

Animal Hide and Go Seek:

Use your journal from above and cut on the fold lines to make 6 squares.  You can also make cards with additional arctic animals listed above.

Play this game with 2 players. Each player takes 3 cards and hides them in the house. Then, players get to hunt of the animal cards the other player hid.
