Step into the shoes of some of nature’s hardiest creatures, from a waddling penguin to a mighty polar bear and experience the icy worlds from the perspective of the animals in Frozen Planet II.
BBC Earth and Minecraft Education have created five free Frozen Planet II worlds, providing students with educational content on a wide range of subjects, accompanied by lesson plans as part of their classroom curriculum.
Featuring immersive landscapes and animals, students are educated about our frozen worlds and the effect of climate change, via creative gameplay.
The Frozen Planet II worlds are also available for free to Minecraft: Bedrock Edition players via the Minecraft Marketplace.
Some of the wildest places on Earth exist in the cryosphere, where water is locked in ice and temperatures are bone-chilling. These worlds are home to some of the most resilient creatures, from polar bears to Lapland bumblebee and killer whales.
The Arctic Ocean is home to a diverse ecosystem all year round. Protect your cubs as a polar bear or roll down hills as a walrus.
High altitude regions are home to wild weather conditions and avalanches. Experience what life is like for the animals calling these frozen peaks home. From the colour-changing high-casqued chameleon to the high-flying golden eagle.
The southern tip of our planet has some of the most hostile conditions on Earth. However, life finds a way to thrive in unique ways. Hunt a seal with your killer whale pod or build a rocky nest for your eggs as a penguin.
The boreal forest is home to countless trees, transforming from lush green in summer to infinite white in winter. Stalk your prey as an Amur leopard or gather nectar as a Lapland bumblebee.
