Our frozen oceans

Help your learners become more familiar with our frozen oceans in the Arctic and the Antarctic with these activities and resources (for 6 to 14 year olds) from the World Wildlife Fund and Our Planet.  The activities also highlight which of the UN’s sustainable development goals are covered.  Help them learn more about why ice is important, what we can do to preserve it and about the animals and creatures in these oceans.  Can your learners guess why ice is important?
