Today, we read our Scholastic News which focused on animals that lived in polar regions and how their bodies adapted for the environment. The kids were so fascinated with this, that our discussion continued for an additional 20 minutes beyond the text, focusing on things such as wind chill, climate, record lows, and weather patterns. We visited the website of Antarctic Connection and discovered some interesting facts such as:
-The coldest temp in Antarctica was -129 on July 21, 1983.
-The warmest temp was 59 on Jan 5, 1974.
-The weather has been described as a "blinding, shrieking blizzard all day".

How interesting! BURRRR!
