Arctic and Antarctic Animals Resources

Lots of photo resources are available below, showing different arctic and antarctic animals. Use them in the classroom by trying some of the following ideas:

  • Show the PDF files on an interactive whiteboard and ask children to describe them. What words / phrases could they use?
  • Think about the habitats where these animals might be found. How are the creatures adapted to living there?
  • Ask the pupils to choose a card at random and research information about the chosen animal.
  • Choose two (or more) of the animals and think of ways they are similar / different.
  • Ask children to create their own art work using the photos as a starting point.
  • Choose one of the cards at random and write a story that includes that animal.
