100 Facts Polar Lands includes key topics about the coldest environments on our planet with exciting numbered facts. Each fact is accompanied by beautiful illustrations and photographs, which add visual meaning to the information for kids.

Essential topics covered in 100 Facts Polar Lands:
• Earth's axis and the reason we have such cold places and extreme seasons
• Inhabitants of the North and South poles such as Inuits and Chukchis
• Polar ice-caps and protecting the poles

Examples of 'I don't believe it' fascinating facts:
• Antarctica is the coldest place on Earth. At Vostok Base, the coldest-ever temperature was -89°C in 1983. That's more than four times colder than inside a freezer!
• Antarctica's ice-cap is an average of 1600 metres deep. In some places, the ice goes down 3350 metres before reaching the rocky surface of the continent.
• There are many predictions about how fast polar ice will melt and raise sea levels. Some say sea levels will rise by one metre by the year 2100.

Activities to make learning accessible and interactive include:
• Make a penguin that stands up! Draw penguin body parts on card and cut them out. Try to make it stand properly by giving it a short, stiff tail.
• Quiz question: Seals usually give birth to three pups. True or false?
• Reenact midsummer at the Arctic circle by holding an apple, with the stem (North Pole) facing towards a desk lamp (the Sun). Which pole stays in the Sun when you spin the apple around the Sun?
