Before beginning this worksheet, you might want to ask your students if they know where the Arctic is located, and what we can find there. If they don’t have a clue, grab the world atlas, and point out the location of the cold Arctic. The Arctic is extremely cold and mostly covered in snow. The animals that live there are natives, and have found ways to survive in the harsh weather. Look at the animals in the worksheet with your students and help them decide which ones live in the Arctic.
Look at the animals you see every day. Can we notice something that is different between them and human beings? If you have a pet in your home, ask your child to touch it and tell you what covers the animal’s body. Some animals are covered in one of two things; fur or feathers. Feathers are mostly found on birds, while fur is on mammals. Identify the animals in this worksheet with your kids, and then help them decide if each animal uses fur or feathers to survive.
