Mapping Antarctica

You can learn a lot about life from books. I learned some interesting information from Mapping Antarctica by Greg Roza (Gareth Stevens Publishing, 2014). Long ago, Antarctica was a much warmer place. The landmass drifted to its current location over millions of years. It is now one of the windiest places on Earth. Antarctica was first explored nearly 200 years ago but has no official borders or capitals. Most importantly, I learned that Argentina, Australia, Chile, France, New Zealand, Norway, and the United Kingdom all have research labs in Antarctica. Books are a great way to expand your general knowledge, to help you carry along facts that can help you in life. And this book is a great one to read if you want to learn more about the coldest continent on earth. – Raninder in grade 6
