I learned that Much of the Arctic is covered in a permanently frozen layer that can be up to 5,250 feet thick. It is called Permafrost.

In the Arctic, brightly colored lights dance and streak across the night sky. What are these colorful lights called Aurora Borealis

Polar Bears are sometimes called noses with legs because their sense of smell is super good.

Polar Bears have strong sense of smell.

Excellent facts! Maybe we should take a field trip to the Arctic. It sounds like a cool place!

The rings in a walrus tusk tell his age.

Polar Bears have been known to smell seals up to 20 miles away. Also, the Arctic Hare has shorter ears than its relatives because that helps keep warmer.

I learned that the Arctic Hare has smaller shorter ears than most hares to keep it warmer.

I learned about the Northern Lights. They are called Aurora Borealis and they are colors in the sky that are caused by magnetic disturbances from the sun! I had never even heard of these lights before today!

Puffins are a type of bird that can swim and fish underwater!

seals and trees both cont age by rings polar bears smell 20 miles

Jesse November 2, 2010 at 3:46 PM

Puffins can swim underwater because of their webbed feet and they can store fish in their beaks while fishing underwater.

A Walrus tusk is like a tree stump. When cut you can count the rings to find out how old they are.

Rianna November 4, 2010 at 1:05 PM

The Puffin can fly, burrow and swim.

Arinne November 4, 2010 at 1:08 PM

A Walrus' age can be determined by rings in its tusks.

Polar Bears have really good noses, they'd hate it at my house cause Vynnie has some really really bad diapers sometimes. Yuk.

Bailey Green November 8, 2010 at 7:40 AM

I learned that people like scientists don't know what narwalls do with their tusk. I think that Narwalls have a tusk to fight off their enemies.

Polar bears smell really well. Puffins can hunt for fish underwater.
