Antarctica is one of the most coldest places in the world, in fact the coldest that has ever been recorded on Earth occurred in 1983 at Vostok Station, Antarctica, measuring a rather chilly −89.2 °C (−128.6 °F). Well known animals that live in Antarctica are penguins and seals. Also around 90% of the earths ice is found on Antarctica. Antarctica is also the 5th largest continent with a populations of 0!!
After watching this video we are going to dig in a little deeper on just how cold Antarctica is. First off going back to the video and facts about Antarctica it is also considered one of the harshest places to live in the entire world. The glaciers in Antarctica are beautiful but yet deadly! They can either be in the water or on land, some of them even float.
What we are going to learn today after talking about Antarctica and looking a different images and videos, we are going to play a game and see how many of you want to end up living in Antarctica. This game does very, each of us are going to draw a card, the 3 that draw the numbers 4, 7, and 14 will have to "pretend' live in Antarctica but they do have the choice not too. If they do not want to, they have a chance to hold an ice cube in there hand for lets say a minute. (obviously if the student does not want to participate simply pick another student or number) once all 3 have done that make sure you have extra ice cubes so that all students can participate at the end if they would like, or if they do want to live on Antarctica have them write a short response to why they would want too.
