This free, standards-based, online publication, developed for middle school science teachers, explores the polar regions. Children might be interested because of the images they have encountered in the media, especially in movies such as March of the Penguins and 8 Below. Thus, student interest may already be there, and capitalizing on it to enhance understanding of any of the content domains of the National Science Education Standards is an easy transition.
