Transcript of Antarctica

Antarctica The Animals of Antarctica Antarctic Food Chain Climate Transport Antarctica, the icebound continent Bibliography The climate in Antarctica changes over the seasons. In winter, the climate is dark, windy and cold, especially at night.
The lowest temperature ever recorded in Antarctica was -89ºC and the average temperature in winter is -34ºC.
In the months of spring and summer, the sea ice surrounding the continent, slowly melts, freeing the ice bergs from their frozen state, and enabling the antarctic wild life to resume their tough lives in the snow. The warmest temperature in Antarctica that was ever recorded was 15ºC and the average summer temperature is -6ºC

The Hagglund is one of the most popular ways of moving over the land. It is able to cut through thick snow drifts and bodies of moving water. It is able to go over icey hills, over rocks and any number of obstacles. All this is made possible by it's special 'wheels'. It is also able to move VERY fast, and is able to brake instantly. If you have motion sickness, I advise you not to go in the rear cabin.

in cold regions, such as the Antarctic
Peninsula.
Most of the Antarctic seals are hunters that prey
on different species of small penguins and fish,
but some of the seals (such as the Leopard and Elephant
seals) prey on Emperor penguins and some of their smaller cousins (such as the Weddel, Ross and the Fur seals).
All seals are protected by thick layers of fur and blubber. Penguins are a species of flightless
aquatic birds. They are found in
Antarctica.
All types of penguins are covered with water
proof feathers, which protects them from cold,
ice and helps them glide through the water.
There are many species of penguins that come in all different shapes and sizes.


Fairy Penguin Emprorer Penguin Whales are aquatic creatures,
that migrate with the changing
seasons. They are the largest known
creature that lives underwater in
the world.
Whales are mysterious animals, especialy
with the way they communicate. They use
sounds that are best described as 'singing'.


Antarctica is a continent that is
covered by layers of snow, that
never melts. Every winter, more
and more snow falls onto the continent, causing the ground level to be built higher and higher.
