Construct a twelve-sided paper globe to display facts learned while exploring Antarctica.
Have students research the continent of Antarctica to learn about its land forms, resources, climate, industry, agriculture, and wildlife. What special characteristics do animals have in order to thrive in such a frigid climate? Why is the Antartic Peninsula particulary sensitive to changes in global temperatures? Students collect facts and pictures about this South Pole continent.
To make a globe that displays facts about Antarctica, have students use a compass and Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencils to draw 12 circles, each with a diameter of approximately 5 1/2 inches (14 cm). Within each circle, draw a pentagon, with each line measuring about 3 inches (7.6 cm). Each point of the pentagon must touch the sides of the circle. Cut out the circles with Crayola Scissors.
Using colored pencils and/or Crayola Crayons, students color the background of each pentagon in soft, light colors and write important information about Antarctica on each of the 12 pentagons. Include illustrations of items such as maps, birds, insects, animals, and housing.
To assemble the globe, fold all five lines on each of the 12 pentagons upward. Place one circle face down, resting on its edges. Attach one edge from each of five more circles to it with a Crayola Glue Stick. Continue to join the edges until all six circles are connected, forming one-half of a ball. Make another half-ball in the same way with the remaining six circles. Attach the edges of the top half to the lower part of the globe.
