This is an informational book appropriate for intermediate grade levels.
The media is a mixture of photography and colored pencil.
This book is written in a paragraph and caption form. Instead of it being written in full paragraph form where it is a continuum from one to the next, it is more like short paragraphs explaining the different pictures on the page. Most pages have various pictures of one aspect of the Arctic or Antarctic lands, including animals, icebergs, Inuit people, whales, etc. The book includes a tidbit about the scientific research that has been done or is being done in the polar lands, and at the end it includes a few step-by-step activities, mainly crafts, relating to some of the concepts in the book. There is even a penguin mask template included. This book is a good informational book by the vocabulary and information provided, but it does not cite its research or sources.
This book could be used in a study on climate
This book could be used in a unit about animals who live in the tundra or water. ( )
