Cryosphere Funbook

DIVERSITY DECK® Funbook

Extended learning about the Cryosphere


Our Cryosphere Funbook is all about the frozen water on planet Earth, including all the snow, glaciers, ice sheets, ice caps, ice floes and icebergs, mainly found in the polar regions. Did you know that Inuit's can build an igloo in less than an hour or that 90% of all ice on Earth is found in Antarctica? Dive into the wonderful world of the Cryosphere and find out why it MATTERS!
Our second DIVERSITY DECK® Funbook is available FREE to everyone during the lockdown period, these books are perfect for keeping young minds occupied and entertained while exploring Earth and our impact on it.

Please make a pledge to allow us to produce more Funbooks at https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/funbooks.

The illustrations and content are designed to be simple and meaningful to focus attention on the information that matters and help children to understand our planet. There are many cross-curricular elements which make for a well-rounded scheme of work and the contents page is laid out so that you can easily identify these. All of our Funbooks correspond to one of our 16 DIVERSITY DECK® card games, emphasizing key facts and generating a thoughtful and inquisitive mind in a playful way.

MAINTENANT are happy to announce that we have teamed up with Business Junction, and their branch Junior Junction are the official sponsors of the DIVERSITY DECK® Cryosphere Funbook! Business Junction launched Junior Junction for the next generation, holding regular events bringing children and young people together.
