KS1 Equator and poles

A lesson introduction and activities used with a year 2 class to explore the temperature of different parts of the globe.

Introduces the idea of poles, as well as the Equator. The two different activities both relate to temperature - one asks children to make the varying temperatures on a world map; the other looks at animals in hot and cold environments.

This could link to science and habitats.
