Use globes, atlases and google maps to find and name both polar regions and other significant geographical features of the world. Make a simplified global map on paper showing the locations of these features. Add a key for information. Identify and record the longitude and latitude of both polar regions, specifically the geographic North Pole and South Pole.
Note: Before adding detail, children could trace the basic outlines and positions of countries and continents. They could add detail and labels, using existing maps as a guide and reference.
