People say Antarctica was part of godwana where almost all the countries were joined together then our country and antartica were all separated from each other. This is why we are now apart from all other countries.

Global Warming

The real thing we came here to talk about is global warming. Global warming is when we make pollution and it creates a hole in the ozone layer. The hole in the ozone layer makes it really hot and the heat melts the ice sheets and the icebergs in Antarctica. If we dont stop the animals and plants will become extinct and our world will be destroyed.
