This arctic adaptation of “This is the House that Jack Built” follows polar bears, walruses, seals, narwhals and beluga whales as they chase each other around “the ice that floats in the Arctic waters.” Not only is the rhythmic, cumulative prose good for early readers; it is a pure delight to read aloud. The “For Creative Minds” section helps children learn how these animals live in the cold, icy arctic region.
This individual eBook App will read-aloud in both English and Spanish with manual or auto page advance. Switch language any time and the page text changes and the reading restarts on the same page with your newly selected language.
In Arctic Waters is designed to be both a fun-to-read story and a launch pad for discussion and learning. It features a 5-page For Creative Minds educational section in the back. And, through the "More.." button on the navigation bar, you will find a 56-page cross-curricular Teaching Activity Guide (includes 3 coloring pages available for printing on our website), 3 interactive quizzes (Reading Comprehension, For Creative Minds, & Math Word Problems), a page of Related Websites (linked with parent gate) for further study.
There is also an optional login feature (on the navbar with parent gate) so that you can view In Arctic Waters on your computers (login through our homepage), androids (new App available in March), and other devices).
