Storyboard Text

  • Hi, I am Hashwath.  I am going to talk about Polar regions.
  • The northern polar region is called the Arctic, and in the south the polar region is the continent of Antarctica
  • POLAR REGIONS
  • CLIMATE
  • Climate of this region is characterized by cold winters and cool summers
  • Polar habitats have just two seasons – summer and winter, but even summer is normally very cold
  • VEGETATION
  • Plants such as dwarf shrubs, graminoids, herbs, lichens, and mosses, which all grow relatively close to the ground, forming tundra
  • The vegetation is buried in the snow in the winter.
  • LIFESTYLE
  • There are over 40 different ethnics groups living in the Arctic region. People in this part have to handle a average of 10 degrees celcius
  • Animals in the arctic also can’t rely too much on eating plants. Most are carnivores and hunt for fish as well as smaller animals.
  • Food Habit: Food is fish, berries and meat in these parts
  • OCCUPATION
  • In the older years, the occupations were hunting and fishing for food
  • Fish and seals are the main food source of the older years. 
  • WILD LIFE
  • Animals in polar regions have adapted to survive in these extreme conditions. They have thick fur or feathers, blend in with the white snow, or hibernate during the coldest winter months
  • Orcas, big eagles and polar bears are the main seal hunters. Penguin (flightless bird, but excellent swimmer) is the most famous inhabitant of this region
