Polar Air in a Shoebox


Use stuff you have at home and cut out of magazines or print out from the Internet and a shoe box to create a weather scene of the Arctic or Antarctic in winter or summer. What you decide to put in your scene is up to you, but it should show what weather in the Arctic or Antarctic looks like in winter or summer.


For a real challenge, split your box in half and use one side to show Arctic scene and the other side to show an Antarctic scene or make one side winter and the other side summer. Remember some things about Arctic and Antarctic air are the same and some things are different. Make sure you make them look different in some ways.
