Arctic theme ice play
Gather different shaped pots, fill with water and freeze. Tip into a large tub with Arctic animals such as penguins, whales, orcas and polar bears.
Have a world map on hand to show children where the land of ice is located in the world.
Talk about the animals who live there, the weather and use language such as "iceberg, freezing, enormous icebergs, glaciers".
Extend with discussions of certain animals such as a whale, ask questions "How big do you think a whale is? " "do they only live in the Arctic?" use these questions to ask Alexa, Google or Siri.
To understand the world
Mathematics for talk of size
Technology if extending the activity
Rock painting Activity
How lovely would it be to have these dotted around your garden or paint them and leave them on your walks for other people to find and put a smile on their faces?
Happy painting x
