Discovering The Arctic: New Places, New Ideas, New Experiences by Discovery Education

These video chapters explore life and adaptation in the Arctic. The Arctic region is too cold for farming; for example, temperatures may rise above freezing just a few weeks a year. Consequently, the soil remains frozen in a permafrost condition. As for inhabitants, aboriginals live here—the Inuit and Amer-Indians are the primary inhabitants of the Arctic region. While they have modern homes and conveniences, many of the Inuit and Amer-Indians choose to hunt seal, fish, and other animals.
