I have finally finished putting together our Antarctica continent box for the kids. This is our first continent box, I am expecting to take the next month to really dig into learning as much as we can about Antarctica. Now I am going to share with you all the fun stuff found inside our Antarctica Continent Box.
I am using the Stockholm Document boxes from The Container Store, each of the Continent Boxes will be the Montessori Color for each of the continents. Antarctica’s color is white, so our box is white, I am really happy with these boxes as they are quite large and can fit a lot of stuff in them. I am still trying to figure out what to use to put the satellite picture of Antarctica on the top with. I’m really thinking I will end up using Modge Podge so that the edges of the map will not curl up over time.
Here are the other boxes I purchased for some of our other continent boxes. Pink will be South America, Green will be Africa, and Orange will be North America. I will purchase the rest of the boxes once these ones are finished.
I printed out this Antarctic board game Science Adventures In Antarctica for the kids to play.
This book is an amazing FREE resource with tons of information and real life pictures!
Penguins is a leveled reader I printed off from Reading A-Z, and bound into a book.
The older kids will be doing the LIMA quest challenge I found on the LIMA website, it will take them about a month to complete but by the end of the month they should be very familiar with Antarctica and everything about it. This is a great resource for older children studying Antarctica.
These pictures of part of the project, they will look at each of the pictures and try to figure out what it is, there is a clue if they need help. I printed off 2 sets of each and laminated them back to back, the first side has the pictures with the clue, the back side has the picture with the answer as to what is in the picture
This is the back side of the card as you can see below the picture is the answer.
We have Animals of Antarctica from Montessori Print Shop. I will also be putting our Antarctic Toob animals in with the animals of Antarctica cards for the kids to match up the animals to the cards.
I printed off the Antarctica Geography folder from Montessori Print Shop. This book is beautiful real life pictures, that are very interesting!
We have lots of Antarctica books inside the box.
Here are a few of our favorite books about the Arctic and Antarctic regions found on Amazon.
Antarctica outline map.
Misc different maps of Antarctica found on the different sites I shared on our Arctic and Antarctica Unit Study Ideas.
I printed off Antarctic stamps. I just googled Antarctic Stamps and printed off that page to use.
I have printed off many pages from this book for the kids to use through out our Antarctic Unit. They have pages about the people, maping, graphs, arts & Crafts, and so much more! This has been a very useful and wonderful book to have available to use.
