After visiting the great barrier reef on our trip around the world, we explored the tundra of Russia. I wasn’t feeling well the week before, so I didn’t have much in the way of extras for this week. But, it didn’t matter anyway. Farm Kid1 felt crummy all this week so we only did the basics for this unit.
Google defines a tundra as:
a vast, flat, treeless Arctic region of Europe, Asia, and North America in which the subsoil is permanently frozen
As I said, we didn’t do much on this unit – including in the display. I added two books, that’s it.
Biome chart with tundra information
Left: We measured that it was 6600 miles from the Great Barrier Reef to the Russian Tundra.
Right: For the postcard, Farm Kid1 chose to draw a herd of musk ox.
We looked through our box on Asia. But, it had nothing related to Russia or Siberia which is where the tundra is located.
Hopefully we have a better virtual visit next week when we explore deciduous forests.
