We have come to the part in our homeschool curriculum where we are learning about all things related to the North and South Poles. We are going to be finishing up our year looking at landforms such as glaciers, fjords etc. and learning about animals that survive in these environments.
Last week I stumbled upon a craft by another blogger here. I loved it and decided to adapt it to fit our classroom. Here is our sceene from the North Pole. We even have polar bears too!
- foam board for the trees
- 2 different shades of green paper to cover the foam board. (Getting green foam board would make this paper unnecessary)
- Glue- I sued hot glue because the UHU glue I had planned to use was missing.
- polyfill stuffing
- White craft pompous 2 different sizes
- craft eyes

This week when we looked at those magnificent glaciers, I was in awe, and those were just from the pictures alone. I can even imagine how it would be to see them in reality!
We have been doing some map work and my son tells me he wants to visit Alaska, and so do I. Hopefully some day.
But even if we don’t get to visit there, there are indeed many wonderful things all around us that point us to our Creator.

“Who among all these does not know
That the hand of the Lord has done this,

And the breath of all mankind?
Romans 1:20 (KJV)
For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
