Last spring, when the schools in the Netherlands closed for the first time due to the COVID-19-pandemic, I gave a series of online classes for children between 8 and 14 years old about nature in both the Arctic and the Antarctic. Since then, I got many request whether I could give these classes in English as well. With the schools still (or again) closed in many parts of the world, I decided to give at least the first part of the series in English as well.
This part deals with the differences between the Arctic and Antarctic and looks at things like human presence, which animals live where, where do we find most plant life. All this, of course, illustrated with the pictures and movies I took during my many trips to both regions. And by the end if this part, you’ll be able to answer the question why penguins never eat Polar Bears (or the other way around).
So if you’re a teacher, or a parent with a kid at home (or just anybody else who is interested), come and join me on Thursday 11 February at 15:00 (CET) on youtube. If that time doesn’t work for you, the recording will be available at the same link afterwards.
Hope to see you there!
