Today your task is to use globes, atlases and google maps to find and name both polar regions and other significant geographical features of the world - it's important to know where they are and which countries and seas boarder them.

Identify and record the longitude and latitude of both polar regions, specifically the geographic North Pole and South Pole. www.dictionary.com may help you.
In addition you could have a go at creating your own personalised Frozen Kingdom knowledge organiser focusing on the geography and vocabulary elements of today's task and upload these to Teams or email them to your class teacher - we'd love to see your work.
