What happens at the poles affects us all: Launch a virtual balloon
Launch a virtual balloon to show your participation in this International Polar Week: What Happens at the Poles affects us all!
Please launch a balloon and let us know what type of activity you are doing this week. Here are some suggestions for bringing activities into the classroom that focus on the global impacts of the changes in the polar regions.
