The word tundra means land of no trees, which is a pretty good description of this cold, barren biome that makes up nearly 20 percent of the Earth's surface. From the Arctic tundra found in the Polar zones to the regions of alpine tundra located on the mountaintops of Europe and North America, students will get an up-close look at this fragile biome. Students explore the biodiversity that exists in these frozen expanses, while a fun, hands-on experiment demonstrates why so many tundra plants are dark in colour.
