Antarctica Kids Edition Report

Antarctica Kids Edition Report

The new Antarctica report includes detailed information on the history, culture, language, food, and daily life of this country.

Here are some fascinating Did You Knows about Antarctica:

  • Antarctica gets its name from a Greek word meaning “opposite of north.”
  • Antarctica is home to the South Pole and is the southernmost continent on earth.
  • No one owns Antarctica, and there are no countries there. The continent is governed by an international treaty that guarantees it is only used for peaceful research activities.
  • Antarctica is considered a desert. Only around 8 inches (20 cm) of rain fall each year along the coast.

Find out about Antarctic Slang, discover how people in Antarctica celebrate Midwinter, and read about the race to the South Pole all in this colorful new report.
