North Pole

Who’s up for a trip to the North Pole? In this BrainPOP movie, Tim and Moby introduce you to the North Poles — yes, there are actually two! Find out why there’s more than one and some cool facts about each, including which pole compasses point to and why one of them moves around from year to year. You’ll find out how warm the Arctic summers get (hint: it’s still pretty cold!), and what animals can live there. You’ll also learn a little bit about the history of the North Pole, including why no one is really sure who reached it first. Finally, you’ll learn about when the polar ice caps started shrinking and what you might be able to do about it. You’ll be on top of the world!
