Year 6 have begun to explore the climate zones in the world. They knew that the equator would fall in the hottest climate zone and Antarctica and The Arctic would be the coldest. They were challenged to explain why this was the case using a “sun”, “earth” and “equator”. Their explanations and questioning were excellent. Using the globe, we ended up investigating why The Arctic ends up with so many hours of daylight in the summer and darkness in the winter.
